The Federation’s Senior Program provides much-needed social services and assistance to the Jewish seniors and infirm in our community.
Jewish seniors who are home-bound or in nursing homes are visited on a regular basis, and rides are provided to ensure they get to doctors’ appointments, pick up prescription medicine, and/or go grocery shopping. During Jewish holidays, the Federation provides programming to nursing homes around the area.
Companionship and socialization is a priority with our Senior Program.
The Federation’s Community Outreach programs touch the lives of thousands of students and adults each year. The Federation offers presentations to schools, colleges, churches, and service organizations within a 75-mile radius to speak about Judaism, the Holocaust, Israel, the Middle East, and personal Jewish experiences.
In addition, the Federation provides books and study materials to schools and organizations that would like to learn more about Jewish culture and history, the Holocaust and Israel.
Shalom Baby is an exciting program sponsored by the Jewish Federation of the Quad Cities to welcome newborn babies or newly-adopted children into our Jewish community.
We invite families who are expecting or have recently celebrated the arrival of a baby or adopted child to contact us so that we can personally wish you a big “Mazel Tov” and bring you a Shalom Baby Gift Basket full of gifts for the new arrival.
