Join KAVOD as we launch our new initiative to address the unmet Emergency Services needs of Holocaust Survivors in the United States.
The KAVOD Survivors of the Holocaust Emergency Fund ( KAVOD SHEF) initiative recognizes that helping any Survivor regardless of where he or she lives, or we live, remains essential.
Recent studies indicate that over 80,000 Holocaust Survivors are living today in the United States—and more than 30,000 are living at or near poverty. The income of these Survivors does not allow them to afford what is needed in order to live a dignified life. Many are choosing between heat or food, medicine or rent. Others have dire living conditions because they cannot invest what is needed in order to repair their homes.
KAVOD SHEF exponentially multiplies the dollars and critical services directly reaching Survivors. Leveraging the dollars raised through a special philanthropic national matching initiative, all funds raised will be matched dollar for dollar over the next two years. KAVOD is committed to launching this vital emergency effort and ensuring that 100% of KAVOD SHEF matching funds go directly toward Survivor services as a critical secondary resource.
All funds will be directed toward Emergency Services and allocated through KAVOD, specifically to address the following urgent and critical needs: Dental, Vision, Medical, Emergency Rent, and Food.
KAVOD SHEF funds will be utilized quickly as a secondary resource, with few restrictions, to address unmet emergency needs of Survivors in communities within the following regions of the United States:
