The Place to Turn for Help

There are hundreds of Jewish families in Chicago who were financially stable until a crisis struck. We’re here to provide immediate assistance – and set them back on the road to independence.

We battle hunger, prevent eviction and homelessness, and help the unemployed secure jobs. We also offer a wide array of free merchandise to needy families, provide holiday and Jewish lifecycle event assistance, and help send children to Jewish schools and camps.   

And it’s all under one roof at our 44,000-square-foot warehouse in Lincolnwood, so we can help community members with whatever they need, when they need it most. 

We offer assistance on a non-discriminatory basis, yet all clients must show a demonstrable need. In keeping with the guidelines of the Greater Chicago Food Depository, of which we are a member partner, we do not discriminate on the basis of age, color, race, religion or any other characteristic protected under the law.
