To meet the expanding needs of our community in the months ahead, Schoke JFS has established the Coronavirus Emergency Fund, a dedicated fund that will help ensure that families facing financial distress, food insecurity, unemployment, homelessness, or other losses as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak will receive support in their moment of greatest need.
