In House Social Services
Starts: 10:00 am

Description: We are pleased to be working with Kelly Newkirk, a social worker intern from Jewish Family Services (KJFS), at Bet Ha'am on December 12 (and the second Wednesday of each month thereafter).

For those who are unfamiliar with KJFS, they provide a range of services:
You probably know about the food pantry and diaper bank - but other programs include Hanukkah Lights (a winter clothing drive for families), adult learning opportunities, Kosher Meals on Wheels for homebound seniors, Friendly Visitor services for seniors living alone or within elder care facilities, information and referral, and case management.

KJFS is also available to provide support and advocacy to individuals and families in transition. They can help navigate issues that arise due to job loss, assist with concerns that arise when an elderly loved one needs additional support, and are available to help apply for food, child care, fuel, and housing benefit. Finally, they're here if you simply need someone to talk to.

To make an appointment, please call KJFS at 207-772-1959. Walk in appointments will also be welcomed, on a first-come first-served basis.

Pay Member Dues

Bet Ha’am plays an important role in all of our lives, providing an open door for all during High Holidays and throughout the year.

The need for supporting the Annual Fund cannot be overstated. These unrestricted funds ensure we can cover our basic, day-to-day needs and meet our budgetary responsibilities, from salaries to building maintenance to Hebrew School supplies.

Membership dues do not cover the full cost of Bet Ha’am’s operations. We rely on the generous support of our members and friends to make Bet Ha’am available to all, regardless of ability to pay.
