The Eve and Harry Vickar Community Assistance Program
Jewish Child and Family Service is pleased to host The Eve and Harry Vickar Community Assistance Program. This program is designed to support Jewish individuals and families facing significant financial challenges. Established with the generous support of the L. Kerry Vickar Charitable Foundation at the Jewish Federation of Winnipeg, the program makes a difference in the lives of individuals whose daily struggles, due to financial constraints, impede their full participation in Jewish community life and in society in general. Each application is reviewed with the utmost respect for the confidentiality of the applicant.
Community members are encouraged to convey information about this program to others in the community who could benefit from this financial assistance.
The agency can arrange short-term emergency financial assistance for families, including interest-free loans from the "Tzedakah Fund".
This program provides assistance to Jewish families to help them meet the extra costs of Passover. Funding for Passover Assistance is made available from an annual community-wide fund raising campaign.
Please contact JCFS if you or someone you know requires a Passover hamper, Passover Assistance or help to attend a community Seder. Our Volunteer Services department is always looking for volunteers for this meaningful program. See how you can help bring this important Jewish holiday into the homes of everyone in our community who wishes to celebrate.
