What makes a meaningful life? Programs funded by the Jewish Home Foundation seek to answer this. Every day at Jewish Home, we make good on our promise to help people in our community live the way they want to live. This means caring for the whole person in body, mind, and spirit. It’s the foundation for our work enhancing the quality of life, health, and well-being of our community.

We believe our residents deserve to live life to the fullest. Through your ongoing commitment and generosity, Jewish Home can continue to be there for whatever life brings. We know that aging is a gift, and the key to aging well is having the right support and resources in place.

we bring this support to more than

2,000 seniors

and their families every year. Our commitment to our residents and our community is unwavering, and we invite you to join us in this important work.

What began as a small residence on St. Paul Street has become the go-to resource for high-quality care in the greater Rochester area.

For nearly 100 years, thousands of donors have helped shape the work and mission of Jewish Home. The organization is rooted in Jewish values and, today, is open to all. As we look to the future, we haven’t stopped dreaming—our dedicated staff, leadership, and volunteers are committed to a best-in-class experience for all who are touched by our mission.
