Yad Chessed is the largest cash assistance agency for Jewish people in Massachusetts. We partner closely with both secular and Jewish social service agencies to help our clients. For many of our clients, the help from Yad Chessed is simply the difference between making it or not.
There is no one profile of a Yad Chessed client. Our clients are young and old, from all denominations and backgrounds. Our clients share only two commonalities: they are Jewish and they are struggling financially.
