JSL is so proud of our CEO, Nancy Heinrich. Here is a copy of her important address at the Annual Meeting, June 27, 2023.
Good afternoon, everybody. And thank you Mark Kowalsky for your commitment and dedication to JSL and those we serve. I’m really happy to be together with you all: Board Members, staff, community members and agency partners, at our beautiful Teitel Apartments in Oak Park.
For those of you who don’t know, the Harriett and Ben Teitel Apartments is a 100% HUD-subsidized community. Half of our 150 residents here are Russian speaking from the Former Soviet Union. While some of our residents here have incomes of less than $500 a month, yes less than $500 a month, you can see that they have a beautiful home that provides more than just a place to live – it provides 5 kosher meals a week, opportunities for gardening, social activities, transportation, out trips, social work support, translation services and more.
