When the unimaginable occurs and families feel overwhelmed and alone, the Jewish Caring Network reaches out with a helping hand and a loving heart.
I'm participating in JCN’s latest fundraiser, a Women’s 5K at The Baltimore Zoo on Sunday May 20th,2012! This is my first 5K and I’m running my mouth (nonstop) to support the Jewish Caring Network!!
My synagogue honored the JCN at our Banquet last Sunday with The Jewish Leadership Award. A video was viewed and dozens of families from the Baltimore Community shared about the myriad of small and large things JCN does to make stressful and difficult situations bearable. Six families from our shul who benefited from JCN’s services were on hand to deliver the award.
This non-profit Baltimore based organization is dedicated to providing support services to families facing life- threatening, life-long, or serious illnesseswhile preserving their privacy and dignity. They enrich families’ lives by providing support, services, and the knowledge that they are standing beside them throughout the duration of their difficult time.
Many non-Baltimore families will also be able to benefit from JCN, since the Tikveh House has been built less than two blocks from Johns Hopkins Hospital and is available to in and out of town families. Check out their web site at www.jewishcaringnetwork.org
JCN talks the talk and walks the walk of Ahavas Yisrael every single day by relating to Jews in the most loving way imaginable.
Their mission is to “Touch Lives and Make a Difference.”
All of the vital services they provide are FREE OF CHARGE.
Each family’s situation is individually assessed, enabling the JCN to cater to their specific needs.
Their services include, but are not limited to: home health care, respite care, medical supplies, alternative health care funds, emergency funds, summer camp, weekly housecleaning, meals, flowers, elaborate gift packages, babysitting and spring water deliveries as well as a variety of other services.
Please DONATE GENEROUSLY to this worthy cause.
