Chai Care
Your Legacy…Our Promise

A Concierge Professional Care Management Program for Individuals 65+


The story of the Jewish people began with a promise: "every Jew is responsible for the other". For those individuals who are creating their Jewish legacy and promising impact for future generations by committing a qualified endowment to the Jewish Community Foundation, we promise Chai Care. Chai Care is a concierge program of the Jewish Federation of Broward County, delivers comprehensive advocacy for people confronted with the challenges of aging through professional care management.


Chai Care helps our donors on an individual basis depending on their needs, through initial and on-going assessment and monitoring, planning and problem solving, education and advocacy and caregiver coaching and support. 


Donors who make an irrevocable endowment of $100,000+ to one or more of our Jewish Community Foundation's Vision Funds may be eligible for our Chai Care program starting at the age of 65.

Chai Cares' Impact

In three years, Chai Care has raised over $12 million for needy Jews in Broward County, Israel and around the world. Since inception, Chai Care has touched the lives of 36 participants and their families, and currently there are 175 donors that are eligible to be part of the program.


Esther Cohen joined the professional team of the Federation in September 2018 as Chai Care Director, a program of the Jewish Community Foundation. Prior to joining Federation, Esther worked in the medical and health care communities for over 30 years, gaining knowledge and experience in pharmaceutical and hospice marketing experience. Additionally, she assisted patients and families by providing concierge professional care management for individuals ages 65+.  Esther loves the fact that at the Federation she can perform "tikkun olam" each and every day, feeling truly blessed to make a difference in people's lives.
