For nearly a century, we have served as a beacon of compassion and change. We are dedicated to extending a helping hand, regardless of race, colour, or creed, to those in our communities who need it most.
Our mission is to improve the world (Tikun Olam) by addressing core human needs. Our vision is simple yet profound: to provide unwavering support to individuals and families facing adversity. We tackle critical issues such as poverty, neglect, low self-esteem, and mental and communicable diseases, and we provide essential care for the aged.
The impact of our work is immeasurable, but the challenges we face are significant.
In a world affected by economic fluctuations and unforeseen crises, your support can make an incredible difference. It can amplify our efforts, expand our reach, and strengthen our resolve to be the change this world so desperately needs.
How We Do It
Taking Care of Our Own
Through our Jewish Family Assistance Project, we extend practical support to Jewish families facing hardships, ensuring they receive a hand-up, not just a handout.
Taking Care of the Aged
Our Eve Kantor Golden Age Friendship Club* creates a warm and welcoming environment for our elderly members, offering activities, entertainment, and nourishing gatherings.
Helping the Sick
The Medicare and Support Fund for the Aged ensures that vital medications are accessible, and transportation to medical appointments is available.
Feeding the Hungry
We provide essential nourishment to thousands of children through monthly food collections and school lunch programs, ensuring no one goes to bed hungry. Their smiles light up our world.
