OUR SERVICES

We work in partnership with the community to improve quality of living and opportunities for those in need.

Many of MJCF's clients struggle to meet the very basic living needs, including: rent, food, medical expenses and utilities

In the last financial year, the MJCF provided more than $240,000 in food assistance.

This program provides funds directly to families prior to the Jewish Festivals when expenses are greater than normal.

We provide more than $60,000 per year to enable proper medical care and equipment to those who otherwise would not be able to afford it.

Last year alone, we funded approximately 100 children from different backgrounds and schools to attend camps, across the community spectrum.

A number of years ago, we became aware that children were attending schools with torn and ill-fitting shoes because parents could not afford new properly sized ones.

We employ a social worker who works very closely with the families in need and provides the emotional support and guidance that families who are in the most dire of circumstances require.

Where required we will seek the services of a financial planner to assist clients with budgeting and to conduct a general review. This can help clients break the cycle of poverty.
