Project Manager, Research and Evaluation

The Jewish Federations of North America
(JFNA) represents 146 Jewish Federations and over 300 Network communities, which raise and distribute more than $3 billion annually for social welfare, social services and educational needs. The Federation movement, collectively among the top 10 charities on the continent, protects and enhances the well-being of Jews worldwide through the values of tikkun olam (repairing the world), tzedakah (charity and social justice) and Torah (Jewish learning).  

The JFNA Center for Advancing Holocaust Survivor Care (CAHSC) advances person-centered, trauma-informed (PCTI) care for Holocaust survivors by: a) awarding sub-grants to local agencies for innovations in PCTI care and for the coordination of services to help Holocaust survivors prevent and resolve emergencies; and b) providing technical assistance and capacity building support to sub-grantees and the larger Aging Services Network on PCTI care. As part of these efforts, the CAHSC engages in research and evaluation functions, including assisting sub-grantees in the development of their program evaluation efforts, compiling and analyzing evaluation data to determine promising practices, monitoring and compiling research and trends on aging and trauma, and disseminating PCTI strategies and lessons learned through conference presentations and publications.
