Any Survivor or their caregiving family members residing in Palm Beach County may be eligible for services. Eligibility is based on assessment of need regardless of whether they already receive services from the Claims Conference, Medicaid or another organization. A confidential, compassionate interview will provide the information needed to determine how the NOW for Holocaust Survivors Initiative can help you.
Join with other Survivors and their families in engaging digital workshops and programs sponsored by the Jewish Federations of North America, in partnership with NEXT GENERATIONS.

Volunteer To Help Survivors
Our volunteers offer dignity, strength, and empowerment to Holocaust Survivors. As a volunteer you will receive an orientation to services at MorseLife, followed by regular workshops to enhance your understanding of the unique needs of Holocaust Survivor families. Workshops are focused on building communication skills to work effectively with Survivors and avoid re-triggering trauma.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please contact us to register for a virtual training session.
