“Sitting down to the delicious, nourishing Shabbos meal is a true gift!!! It raises our spirits, makes us feel connected to the community from within our own home, and makes us feel like a part of something bigger- part of a group- and ensures that we have nourishing delicious meals. The friendly visit and the human contact with other community members that comes when the meals are delivered is an added bonus. It brings joy and is greatly appreciated!”

“This [day program] has been by far the best because of the consistency,” Chuck A. said about the [Jewish Family Service Adult Day Respite Care] program, which runs for four hours three days per week, adding “That’s what I need. That’s what [my wife] needs.” Participant Barry K. said that the conversations he has with others while attending the program “makes life worthwhile.” Source WCPO.
