Social Care Centre programmes focus on comprehensive assistance to the members of Latvian Jewish community who are in need of any kind of support, especially the elderly, the lower-income members and the Holocaust survivors.
The “Hesed” implements various programmes that help to improve the quality of life: home care, assistance with purchasing food, medicaments and medical insurance, providing assistance with paying utility bills, etc. In addition, the centre’s clients are able to celebrate Jewish holidays, attend a variety of groups, and participate in concerts and excursions all together.
Social programmes are being implemented with the help of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee JDC/Joint, Claims Conference, Baltic Jewish Forum and the Council of Jewish Communities of Latvia.
