Honoring our founding commitment to serve as the "last surviving relative" to all victims of Nazi persecution.
Selfhelp was founded in 1936 to help waves of émigrés fleeing from Nazi persecution find new lives in America. Throughout the decades, our comprehensive services have enabled them to retain their well-earned independence, self-respect and quality of life.Today, Selfhelp cares for a greater number of Holocaust survivors than any other organization in North America.
As the needs of Holocaust survivors evolved, so did the scope of Selfhelp’s Nazi Victim Services Program. Whether we are addressing health and safety issues, offering counseling or providing social opportunities, all our programs are focused on the unique needs of Holocaust survivors.
