Non-Profit Spotlight: Osher Marin JCC

MARIN COUNTY, CALIFORNIA - The Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund (JCF) is a non-profit organization in the Bay Area that supports community programs in San Francisco, the Penninsula, Marin and Sonoma Counties. Community-Wide Senior Transportation is an area of particular interest that they support. The 2009 Impact Report (pdf) published by the JFC, sighted transportation as a "glaring service need" for many seniors in the Bay Area. 10% of the annual JFC budget allocation for elder care went towards senior transportation in that year (page 13). An example of one such program that JFC supports is Osher Marin JCC. Shown in the following video, Osher Marin JCC is a non-profit community organization based in San Rafael, California that reflects the unique values of Jewish history and culture. Their transportation service helps elders access senior programs at the Osher Marin JCC center.
