Joe’s Place is very grateful to have received a $2,500 grant from the Rabbi Robert P. Jacobs Jewish Fund for Human Needs (JFHN). These funds will directly support our daily operations at the house.
About the Jewish Fund for Human Needs (from http://www.jcrcstl.org/):
The Jewish Fund for Human Needs (JFHN) works to fulfill the mitzvah of tzedakah (the obligation to do righteous acts) by awarding small grants to non-Jewish social services agencies helping those in need throughout the St. Louis region. An Allocations Committee made up of representatives of a cross-section of the Jewish community determines which agencies shall be funded. There are two funding cycles per year. Through these grants, JFHN helps to support small St. Louis area non-profits which are providing direct services to those in need of food, housing, health care, education, employment and other essential human needs. The current JFHN Chair is Julie Eastlund of Congregation Shaare Emeth.
