CARES is the department of Federation that focuses on serving our community's older adults.

By gathering information about needs and trends, CARES  informs how Federation considers priorities for older adults and allocates dollars. CARES creates a network connecting 11 local partners that provide direct services to seniors to enhance their collaborative service offerings.

Together, CARES member partners provide a continuum of care to help older community members handle physical issues, mental health and spiritual concerns. They also provide social and vocational opportunities as well as housing and transportation.

Meeting the Needs of our Holocaust Survivors

Federation is partnering with two national organizations, each of which is bringing important funding for essential services to Greater MetroWest.

Federation has been awarded $150,000 for 2024 by the Jewish Federations of North America Center on Holocaust Survivor Care and Institute on Aging and Trauma, dedicated to helping Holocaust survivors and all older adults with a history of trauma receive the care they need to thrive.
