Selfhelp’s Holocaust Survivor Program serves as a safety net for more than 4,500 survivors each year, providing them with the support and care needed for each to remain in their home, living independently with dignity for as long as possible. These services include supportive counseling, subsidized home care, housekeeping, emergency financial assistance, social programs, guardianship for those unable to care for themselves and much more.  

An annual highlight of our program are our Witness Theater presentations, designed to enhance public awareness of and teach future generations the lessons of the Holocaust.

Please join Selfhelp in ensuring that survivors will never be alone and that their experiences will never be forgotten.
