In the days immediately following the tornadoes and severe weather that devastated parts of our community, Jewish Family Services has been checking on its clients – either by phone or in person when no one answered calls, from the most isolated to those who are the least isolated (e.g., have transportation and/or family locally), to assess their needs and either meet those needs or connect them to the proper community resources. Needs assessed included access to water, non-perishable food, refrigeration for medication (if necessary), batteries for radios and/or flashlights and communication.

Many have asked us, “What can we do to help?” What we need right now is for our community to continue to show the care and compassion it always has. Please call those you know who live in the impacted areas, particularly seniors and those who may not have family nearby, and check on them. If you or others come across those who need assistance, please contact Jewish Family Services at 937-610-1555 and we will provide assistance navigating resources.

Jewish Family Services wants to make sure that everyone has access to the most comprehensive list of where to find help. The best source for this information, and the source of the information below, is found at the Dayton City Manager’s Office’s webpage found here. There you will find information about water and ice distribution sites, shelters, showers, and more.
