More Help for Holocaust Survivors
The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany (aka the Claims Conference) has awarded an increase in the funds available for qualifying survivors to receive in-home services and case management as they encounter the challenges of aging. In the U.S., 25% of all Nazi victims live at or below the U.S. poverty threshold, compared to 9% of all U.S. older adults. Approximately 20% are estimated to live with disabilities.
