Senior Adult Services

JCP ServicesHolocaust Survivor Care Program (HSCP)
Consistent with our community’s obligation to provide Holocaust survivors in the Albuquerque metropolitan area New Mexico with a caring support system, the JCP provides a dedicated case worker to assist Holocaust survivors with coordination of care and services within the community, advocate for restitution funds from Germany and actively seek to improve an individual’s quality of life. With funding from the Claims Conference, we hold regular social gatherings for Holocaust Survivors to connect with one another.

Senior Outreach Services
JCP enhances the lives of seniors and helps older adults by providing comprehensive support to them and their loved ones. We conduct home visits as appropriate, facilitate access to supportive services, and help maintain a connection with the Jewish community for those who are isolated.

Visits to Jewish Seniors

JCP staff and volunteers visit Jewish seniors living in facilities and in their homes. These visits bring joy and regular connection.

Holiday Outreach Basketsjeri-shalom-house_retouched
In an effort to extend our outreach to Jewish seniors, JCP brings baskets for Passover and Rosh Hashanah and Chanukah to isolated seniors and Holocaust survivors. With funding from Jewish Community Foundation of New Mexico and in partnership with local synagogues and community volunteers, we put together and deliver baskets to over 50 Jewish seniors.
