A GUIDE TO PASSAIC
NON-PROFITS
  1. Bikur Cholim supports members of our community who are in crisis resulting from a medical situation.  Our mission is one of both Chessed and Tzedaka.  Please visit the Our Services page for a full description of our mission and programs.
  2. Tomchei Shabbos is the same organization as Hand-in-Hand.  They dedicate their time and resources to basic needs of people in the community who do not have enough money to put adequate food on their tables.
  3. Somaich Achim supports the Jewish community through JFS with dedicated case workers who attend to the needs of families/individuals that have desperate need for assistance and fit in one or more of three categories:
    1. In danger of homelessness
    2. Family member potentially in need of psychiatric hospitalization
    3. Need to potentially involve child protective services

It should be stressed that these organizations work well together and function, in many ways, as a team.
