The Grotta Fund for Senior Care of the Jewish Community

Our aims:

  • Support programs and initiatives that benefit older adults and their families, helping to them to age in place.
  • Optimize the social and physical conditions of communities to be more welcoming and age-friendly.
  • Strengthen cross-sector efforts that will address key medical and social challenges of older adults and of those most vulnerable. Currently Grotta grantees are promoting social engagement and food security and creating Age-Friendly communities.
  • Sustain the legacy of the Theresa Grotta Center for Restorative Services, established in 1916.

Grants are awarded to 501 c3 agencies and municipalities serving older adults in Essex, Union, Morris, Sussex, and eastern Somerset counties, on a non-sectarian basis, through a competitive Request for Proposal (RFP) process.

At this time, the Grotta Fund is not seeking new applicants for grants. The next grant cycle will be announced in early Spring 2018.

  • Uber service on the way for Madison, Chathams seniors

    Madison Eagle (2/1/17)
    A new transportation service for senior citizens in the Chathams and Madison is likely to begin as a three-month pilot program in April, said John Crouthamel, who is working on the project as part of the Tri-Town 55+ Coalition.

    Crouthamel, who also serves on the board of trustees of the Senior Services Center of the Chathams, said rides are likely to cost seniors $3 to $5, with Tri-Town 55+ paying the rest of the cost, which is 87 cents a mile.
