To accommodate the rapid pace of service responses developed by NJHSA member agencies in a short amount of time and the critical need to innovate, the Network’s Center for Innovation and Research has modified the NJHSA Jewish Poverty Challenge program in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Having administered an Intensive Incubation Program in Year One with support provided to three member agency teams (JFS Columbus, JFCS of Greater Philadelphia and JFS Metro Detroit, JVS Human Services Detroit and Yad Ezra), the Jewish Poverty Challenge will be restructured in Year Two to provide assistance to a much larger number of NJHSA member agencies.
Additionally, the workload and related assistance will be more flexible. All NJHSA member agencies will be able to access relevant content in the form of webinars, shared content and a social innovation toolkit. In addition, up to ten (10) agencies will have the opportunity to qualify for monthly one-on-one assistance and guidance from the consultant team at Start Co.
