Do you need help?

The Jewish Alliance of Greater Rhode Island helps individuals with immediate emergency needs possibly created by job loss, break-up of the family, illness, death, or other unexpected financial emergencies.

We do not believe we are solving all problems by simply handing out food or paying utility bills. We see the immediate emergency need as a symptom and not the problem. Our role is to provide assistance with the immediate need and to take a look at the total needs of the family unit. We work with the family or individual to identify appropriate referrals, using all available community resources. Contact Jennifer Zwirn at
