Jewish Family Service of Metrowest (JFS)
JFS is a nonprofit, community-based organization dedicated to standing up for those left behind and provides services to over 7,500 people in need within the Metrowest and Greater Boston regions each year. At this time JFS is preparing to resettle individuals and families from Ukraine in the Metrowest Greater Boston area.
World Central Kitchen is supplying thousands of fresh meals to families fleeing their homes, as well as meals to those who are staying in Ukraine. Though a fairly “new” organization, (created in 2010 after responding when an earthquake devastated Haiti) WCK has provided food at disaster sites all over the world.
The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC)
The JDC is the leading Jewish global humanitarian organization. They are currently on the ground in Ukraine, handling displaced persons, including arranging transport and accommodations in Western Ukraine, Moldova and across Europe.
Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS)
For more than 130 years, HIAS has been helping refugees rebuild their lives in safety and dignity. “As we like to say, we used to help refugees because they were Jewish; now we help refugees because we are Jewish.” HIAS is now responding to the crisis in Ukraine with a response team in Poland.
