WHO WE ARE

An initiative of Agudath Israel Midwest Region, Gesher is a cost-efficient answer to local families in need. We seek to collaborate with local organizations to provide Cleveland families access to benefits and government programs they’re eligible for. By helping eliminate cultural barriers and leveraging strong partnerships, we ultimately help families overcome the challenges of financial hardship.


HOW WE HELP

Navigating the inner workings of government programs poses an unnecessary, added strain to families facing financial hardships. This is where Gesher steps in. In conjunction with the JFSA, we work to open doors that are otherwise locked to those in need. As community builders, the Federation and Gesher create a synergy that fuels client referral on an individual level, on behalf of the community.
