Project Ezra: A Safety Net

 In Caring

“You have no idea how much it really helped.”

When Steve lost his job, he was devastated. He was behind on his rent. He had to choose between buying food or train fare to get to job interviews.

But then he turned to Jewish Family & Community Services and found Project Ezra, a financial safety net for East Bay Jews going through periods of crisis. Project Ezra paid the rest of his rent and gave him assistance for transportation and food. It bought Steve the time he needed.

Thanks to Project Ezra, Steve found a job. He told JFCS, “You have no idea how much it really helped and made my current situation possible.”

Project Ezra is a program of Federation partner JFCS East Bay.
