Funding Sources

  • Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany

    • Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Holocaust Survivor Emergency Assistance Fund and the URO Charitable Trust Limited, administered by the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany for the benefit of needy Jewish Nazi victims. 

  • ​The David Berkovits Memorial Fund to Aid Holocaust Survivors in Need 

    • This fund began just over three years ago.  The fund was started as a way to remember the generosity that David demonstrated throughout his life.  His family knew that helping others would be the best way to preserve his memory.  The fund has helped many local Survivors in need with necessities that otherwise would not be available to them.  The generosity of family and friends both within and outside the local community has been incredible.  It is the wish of David's wife and daughter that the fund continues as long as there are Survivors in need.

 
Senior Lifeline Program

Las Vegas Senior Lifeline (LVSL) is a non-denominational program established in 2004.  The goal of the Las Vegas Senior Lifeline is to better equip low-income, frail older adults (age 60+) to live independently in their own homes, maintain a high quality of life and reduce unnecessary institutionalization.

All LVSL clients receive Case Management services. An individual service plan is developed and monitored of to ensure that health and social service needs are met through a combination of LVSL and community resources. Clients meet with their case manager regularly to conduct “in-home” and telephone assessments in order to maintain services.

 

Current LVSL services include:

 

  • Homemaking Services - Assistance with light housekeeping.

  • Nutrition Transportation – bus transportation for grocery shopping & congregate meal.

  • Medical Transportation - provided in conjunction with the Nevada Division of Aging Taxi Cab Voucher program. LVSL pays for Taxi Cab Coupons when they are used for medical & social service appointments.
