The JCC-WHI works with individuals and families of all ages and backgrounds to help them lead independent lives and enhance their quality of life. We achieve these goals through a wide variety of programs and services including case assistance provided by caring social workers, and entitlement assistance to access whatever help is available through various government or other agencies.

The requests for help that we receive in our daily encounters at the office are very varied, and represent the cross-section of clients that we serve:
“ I am expecting a baby in a few months but I don’t have insurance.”
“My disabled parents will be coming to visit. How do I find out about short-term services available to them in the neighborhood.”
“ My heat isn’t working and I’m 92 years old.”
“My grandmother is getting very forgetful and needs to have someone stay with her at night. How do we find someone trustworthy?”
“ My son wants to move into the neighborhood, and needs assistance to find a reasonably priced apartment.”
“ I received a letter concerning my entitlements from a government agency that I don’t understand.”
