2011 marked the 75th Anniversary of JewishCare or Australian Jewish Welfare Society as it was called in 1936. And what an important year it has been.
Construction of the new Saber Street headquarters is well and truly underway. JewishCare continued to work with other communal organisations especially Chai Foundation, Wolper Jewish Hospital and BNai Brith. We continued to respond to the needs of over 4,000 people over the year and initiated a new Mentors program.
We could not have accomplished these achievements without the dedicated staff and volunteers and the 2010-2011 Annual Report which is being sent out in hard copy early next year highlights a few of these individuals.
