Program Description

For 162 years, JCRS has served at-risk, dependent and financially challenged Jewish children and families from seven (7) Mid-South states: Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, and Tennessee by providing college scholarships, grants for Jewish summer camp experiences, special needs assistance, and other vital outreach programs that are pivotal in building one's Jewish identity.

JCRS is a unique Jewish agency. Nowhere else in the United States can a family obtain under one roof case management in the form of funding for a child with special needs, substantially funded camp and education scholarship assistance and Jewish outreach. Whether it is through a one-time special needs assessment or a lifetime of therapy and care, a subscription to the PJ Library that provides free Jewish themed books to children up through age eleven, a Jewish summer camp grant, or an undergraduate aid package, we are here to help as best we can. Impressive as these figures and impact seem, they are insufficient to the enormous needs at hand.
