Last year, BJH Foundation for Senior Services awarded 21 grants totaling more than $203,230 to help fund programs such as elder day care, congregational nurse programs, social worker programs, home and community services, guardianship and care management for Jewish older adults in North and South Carolina. Over the past 7 years, BJH Foundation has awarded over 130 grants in excess of $1.4 Million Dollars.
"The BJH Foundation stays focused on helping people and making a real difference," says Cheryl David, President BJH Foundation for Senior Services. "I'm so proud of the projects and community events that we support, because they enhance the quality of life for Jewish older adults across North Carolina and South Carolina. For example, with our funding, The Congregational Nurse Program was able to produce a manual showing other communities how to start similar programs, through connecting nurses with seniors in Greensboro and the surrounding areas."
She added, "I was pleasantly surprised when the Congregational Nurse visited my family member when she was placed in rehabilitation care. I guess what goes around does really come around!"
BJH Foundation continues to reach out to the Jewish older adult population with an emphasis on five different focus areas. These include religion, Jewish learning and education, improving health, meal and fellowship/social programs and targets low income, assisted living and older adults who are 70+ years old.
