Hundreds of vulnerable individuals live near you that need your help – and with Bikur Cholim you can help make a difference in their lives! Young or old, Bikur Cholim is always there connecting community members at times when it’s needed most. For over six decades the organization’s dedicated volunteers have been providing support in the form of:
Transportation to medical appointments:
Naftali, a young father whose daughter had leukemia, reached out to us for transportation. With no family support, Bikur Cholim was able to arrange transportation to the hospital.
Food for the temporarily disabled and grocery pickup for the homebound:
Chaya, a mother of 8, recently slipped on ice and broke her hip. Unable to cook and tend to her family, Bikur Cholim stepped in by providing meals and volunteers helped with the children.
Family Crisis Intervention Program
Avital, 27, arrived in the U.S. as a bride anticipating a bright future. Within a few short years and 3 children later, Avital found herself in a horrific abusive marriage, alone and frightened. With Bikur Cholim’s guidance, support and intervention by a lawyer, Avital is now “free” to build a new life for herself and her children.
Adopt a Bubby:
Mindel was an older senior. With no family, she often found herself lonely. Chaya, a seminary girl wished to make a difference in the lives of others. She visited Mindel twice a week, and forged a close bond, providing Mindel with much needed company.
Shofar and Megillah, home and hospital visits:
In addition to the various services we provide, Bikur Cholim coordinates a home and hospital visiting program. Volunteers visit homebound and hospitalized individuals– these selfless volunteers even spare time during Yomim Tovim, blowing shofar and leining Megillah for the homebound.
No matter your skills, time availability, or interest, Bikur Cholim can help connect you to people for whom you can make a huge difference. Be a part of our “Chessed Family”
