The Foundation joined with many of our community’s major donors to assist Hebrew Senior Care (HSC) with its impressive plan to transform its business model from an acute care ward to an expanded Behavioral Health Unit. The expansion has doubled HSC’s capacity to care for seniors from 16 to 32 beds, addressing a shortage of behavioral health services for seniors in Greater Hartford, while providing a steady income to help ensure HSC’s financial sustainability. “The Jewish Community Foundation provided $100,000, which significantly bolstered our fundraising effort,” says HSC Chair Debbie Kleinman. “Our agency was also blessed by strong volunteer fundraising led by Henry Zachs.”
