Financial Assistance

JFS relies on contributions from donors to provide financial assistance. These funds are used to provide support to local Jewish families and individuals in need. Jewish households struggling with finances and facing unplanned financial circumstances often turn to JFS for assistance. However, funds are very limited. The agency continuously depends on the generosity of our community to donate funds, goods, and professional services to accommodate the ever growing needs of Hampton Roads Jewish residents.
JFS may be able to provide gift cards to grocery stores and gas stations, or may be able to provide financial assistance for other necessities such as utility assistance, rent or other living expenses.

In addition, we may be able to provide assistance with:

  • applying for community services
  • transportation to community resources and medical appointments
  • gifts for Jewish children and teens through our annual Chanukah Gift Program
  • Jewish holiday/ritual items and/or subsidized burial expense
  • grocery gift cards for Rosh Hashanah, Passover and Chanukah
  • subsidized child care and school expenses
  • subsidized summer camp fees
