As the summer warms us the holiday season may not be top of mind, but we are thrilled to share a heartwarming update on the impact of your generous gifts to Jewish Family Services of Silicon Valley (JFS SV) through Wish Book 2022. Your contributions have made a world of difference in the lives of newcomer refugees, providing them with essential resources and support as they begin their journey in the United States. Let’s explore the inspiring ways your donations are bringing hope and transforming lives.
Supporting Refugee Resettlement Services
Throughout this year, JFS SV has been steadfast in providing crucial resettlement services and connecting refugees with essential resources. Thanks to your support, they have been able to assist newcomers with the purchase of necessities like food, clothing, household items, school supplies, and bus passes, easing their transition to a new home. Your contributions have also facilitated access to longer-term support systems, such as Cal Fresh, subsidized housing, and food pantries, helping improve their financial stability.
Empowering Newcomer Refugees
The journey of refugee newcomers from Ukraine has been made smoother and brighter, thanks to your generous donations. JFS SV intends to serve up to 350 refugees this year, and through your support, we will provide them with clothing, school supplies, technology support, transportation, legal assistance, and comprehensive case management. Our goal is to empower these brave individuals to move from mere survival to a life of quality, while also supporting them in adapting and acculturating to life in the United States.
From Survival to Quality of Life
The impact of your donations goes far beyond the surface. By providing essential resources and support, you have been instrumental in helping newcomer refugees build a foundation for a better future. Your kindness has allowed JFS SV to assist them in developing budget and life plans, laying the groundwork for a stable and fulfilling life in their new country.
Thank You for Bringing Hope
As the summer winds down, we want to extend our heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you. Your support has brought hope to refugee newcomers, empowering them to embrace their new lives with courage and determination. Through your kindness, you have shown them that they are not alone on this journey, and together, we can create a brighter and more inclusive future.
