HEBREW FREE LOAN ASSOCIATION
The JEFF ASTOR FOUNDATION has provided funds to the Hebrew Free Loan Association of San Francisco for their Special Needs Fund. This Fund helped those with emotional, behavioral and physical challenges such as therapy for families and children, and special boarding school programs for teens with drug and behavioral problems. In addition we have provided funds for the Hebrew Free Loan’s Emergency Fund Program to cover those with cash-flow challenges, such as rent to avoid eviction, medication or the repair of a car needed for work.
Hebrew Free Loan provides interest-free loans to help individuals in Northern California overcome serious financial challenges and pursue life dreams. In 2019 they assisted more than 1,100 individuals with active loans totaling about 11.5 million dollars.
