Casip-Cojasor: allowing Holocaust survivors to continue living in their homes
The Casip-Cojasor Foundation reviews requests from increasingly dependent Holocaust survivors to receive care or various forms of aid at home. This financial assistance comes from a specific fund awarded by the Claims Conference and the Foundation for the Memory of the Shoah.
The aid is available to people who lived through the 1939-1945 period and suffered persecution or restrictions on their freedom due to anti-Semitic measures in France, Central and Eastern Europe, Asia and North Africa (Tunisia and Morocco, according to German Government guidelines).
This program can assist people on low incomes or who have temporary difficulty paying for:
- Home caregivers
- Medical bills (treatment, mutual health insurance, prostheses)
- Fixing up their homes to be safer and more self-sufficient
- Food (meal deliveries or other expenses)
- Transportation into town.
The amount of aid depends on the household’s resources and expenses and is subject to an income limit.
The Foundation for the Memory of the Shoah funds this program.
