Agency Highlight: The Jewish Fund

July 5, 2013 | Jennifer Levine

Under the leadership of Board chair, Dr. Richard Krugel and vice-chair, Karen Sosnick Schoenberg, the 32-person Board of Directors of The Jewish Fund has announced a diverse spectrum of recent grants. Over $2 million in grants was approved at its recent May Board meeting, including new and continuation grants.

These grant awards will support new and innovative efforts to address the health and social welfare needs within the Jewish community and throughout metropolitan Detroit, and some will enhance the historic bond between the Jewish community and Detroit.

Several highlighted new grants include the following: Expansion of free clinic hours at Ferndale-based, Ferncare Clinic; new program developments by Hillel of Metro Detroit to engage college students in Detroit-based activities and initiatives; support of new security efforts for Jewish Federation affiliated schools and camps; expanded dental care services for uninsured residents of Detroit by St. Vincent DePaul; a mobile health center for residents of the Brightmoor neighborhood in Detroit through a partnership between Covenant Community Care Clinic and Beaumont Hospital; and the development of a new mental health program supporting young adults who are diagnosed with both mental illness and substance abuse to be implemented by Kadima.

Community needs continue to require support from the entire philanthropic community, and The Jewish Fund is pleased to be an active contributor to the health and well-being of our community.
