Factors that contribute to poverty in New York's Jewish Community

Our clients face both direct and indirect factors that contribute to poverty, such as: devastating illness, experience a layoff, suffer a life altering trauma, while others may lack of access to higher education and a subsequent career track, or have a language barrier.

The most pressing issue facing most of our clients is affordable housing; families often face eviction and are on the brink of homelessness. Others struggle simply to feed their families or keep their utilities on.
