Without a small interest-free loan, some people could find themselves homeless, without childcare, or unable to get medical treatment. Jewish Free Loan can be a last resort, and the only community organization that provides cash-in-hand for unexpected, emergency situations of many kinds. Emergency loans can be used to pay for the fees associated with:
- childcare during the pandemic
- remote learning tools: Wifi, computers, school supplies
- processing adoption and citizenship applications
Emergency loans can also be used to pay for:
- rent, security deposits, Section 8 housing, moving expenses, first and last month’s rent, and basic furniture.
- car repairs, transportation, food, prescription drugs
The mission of Jewish Free Loan Association is to offer interest-free loans on a non-sectarian basis to individuals and families whose needs are urgent and who may not qualify through normal financial channels. Interest-free loans, instead of charity, fill an important gap by promoting self-sufficiency with dignity. Jewish Free Loan Association is a source of economic justice in the community.
