Assemblywoman Nily Rozic (D-Fresh Meadows) has allocated $50,000 to Selfhelp’s Holocaust Survivor Program and UJA, which will provide services and programming for survivors.
“New York’s state budget commits to caring for those who need it most—Holocaust survivors,” said Rozic. “It is our responsibility to ensure that they have access all the necessary services to live with the comfort and dignity they deserve.”
Selfhelp’s Holocaust Survivor Program provides services that vary from mental to physical health. It also helps survivors find housing and other life essentials.
“The people who UJA and SelfHelp assist every day, survived some of the most horrific persecution in history,” said state Sen. Toby Stavisky (D-Flushing). “Services like the Holocaust Survivor Program allow for these survivors to live independently with dignity, while having their unique needs met.”
“When so much of our progress is defined by looking back on our history, it is important we remember those who have suffered the greatest losses and do our part to support and uplift them as much as we can,” said Rozic.
