The Holocaust Survivors Program was launched in calendar year 2019 in an effort to fill a gap in the provision of legal services directed to Holocaust survivors who reside in New York. There are approximately 45,000 Holocaust survivors who live in the metropolitan area and many members of the population live at or below the poverty line. The law center has begun a pilot project to provide legal assistance to the Holocaust survivor community in response to a range of civil matters, including housing, benefits and issues involving guardianship.
