KleinLife announced that it received a $150,000 grant from the Jewish Federations of North America (JNFA) through the Center for Advancing Holocaust Survivor Care.
The grant, which will be combined with matching funds, will go toward new programming for area survivors.
“We are already playing a strong, active and supportive role in caring for our KleinLife members who are Holocaust survivors, and this grant will now allow us to immediately add more life-enhancing programs and supportive services for their well-being,” KleinLife President and CEO Andre Krug said.
There are more than 100,000 Holocaust survivors in the United States, with about one in four 85 or older and a similar percentage living in poverty.
The Center for Advancing Holocaust Survivor Care was started in 2015 after the federal Department of Health and Human Services awarded up to $12 million over five years for survivor services.
