Adult Day Center Awarded Grant from Jewish Federation to Fund Scholarships
The Adult Day Center at the J is proud to announce that it has received a grant from the Jewish Federation of St. Louis that will provide scholarships to Jewish individuals who meet eligibility criteria.  Maggie Menefee, MSW, Director of the Adult Day Center stated, “We are most appreciative of these scholarship dollars which will help low-income individuals benefit from the program.”

The Adult Day Center, licensed by the State of Missouri as an Adult Day Health program, offers a variety of services and activities to meet the needs of care recipients and caregivers. The full-day program includes stimulating activities aimed at maintaining cognitive and physical abilities, and provides opportunities for socialization that improve mood and well-being. The program also provides much needed respite and support to family members so they have the freedom to maintain their own job and/or other responsibilities. Escorted door-to-door transportation is available in many areas.
