JCCGCI offers case management assistance in many languages to seniors, many of whom are Holocaust survivors. Services include short-term case assistance, information and referrals for seniors to help them gain access to needed services, benefits and entitlements they would otherwise be unable to obtain. These include, but are not limited to, Medicaid, Food Stamps, Elderly Pharmaceutical Insurance Coverage Program and Section 8 Housing Assistance. Case managers and case workers communicate in English, Spanish, Russian, Hungarian, Hebrew and Yiddish.

We provide case assistance to seniors at our our main office, at our five senior center locations, and at our Urban Neighborhood Services Multi Service Center in Coney Island. Case assistance to Holocaust survivors is offered at our central site and at other partner sites throughout Brooklyn including Shorefront Jewish Community Council (in Brighton Beach), Boro Park Jewish Community Council and Nachas Health and Family Network (serving Borough Park and Flatbush).

JCCGCI also has a team of licensed social workers who provide more intensive case management to Holocaust Survivors, including counseling and therapeutic services.

We would like to thank our case management program funders, NYC Department for the Aging (DFTA), NYC Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD), The Elie Wiesel Holocaust Survivors Initiative of NYC Council and the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany.
