Financial Assistance for Seniors and Older Adults

Sometimes the help you need is financialOlderAdults_1_ContentQuote

Older adults tell us time and again: “I just want to stay in my own home.” We understand. And we offer many kinds of financial assistance that can help our older population age in place. Because everyone is different, Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Greater Philadelphia can provide financial help for something as simple as a medication or as complex as professional, coordinated care.

We Can Help

Depending on an individual’s situation, we can help with:

  • Financial emergencies that might require assistance with expenses like rent, utilities and clothing
  • Home care assistance such as bathing or meal preparation so that an older adult can stay in his or her home
  • Chores and housekeeping when an older adult cannot perform household tasks
  • Transportation (link to transportation section)
  • Nutritious, home-delivered meals
  • Home safety equipment
  • Assistance with accessing available public and private benefits

The Hebrew Free Loan Society of Greater Philadelphia provides interest-free loans to Jews in our community. Personal and Business loans are available.  For more information, visit

We are in challenging and unprecedented times. As we all navigate this new way of living and working together, one thing that remains constant is that JFCs is here for our clients and we are here for each other.


We are watching closely what our City, State and Federal government is saying and doing and translating that into what that means for us as an organization.


We are exploring ways to reach members of our community using the core competencies that we all have to alleviate stress and anxiety. We are communicating with many similar agencies across the country to learn more and better understand policies put forth from our Governor and the Federal government.


Many in the community want to help our clients and want to know what plans we have put in place to reach the most vulnerable.


You can be reassured we remain committed to providing the best care we can offer to all of our clients during these challenging times.


We continue to closely follow the community needs of the community we serve and how we address these ever changing needs.


JFCS is here for you and we will get through this together. Stay safe.
