BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Seniors living by themselves are extremely vulnerable when the sunny skies turn to storm warnings. With the Atlantic Hurricane Season starting in just days — on June 1st — Ruth and Norman Rales Jewish Family Services wants seniors to know that they can register now with the agency.

Danielle Hartman, JFS President & CEO said, “JFS takes our responsibility to help seniors, particularly those with no family nearby, very seriously. Although JFS is not a first responder agency, JFS coordinates with first responder agencies and volunteers to play a vital role before and after major weather events.” 

JFS utilizes pre-screened volunteers, board members and staff to check in after a storm – first by phone, and then in person if needed.   

There is no charge to register for this service and information used is only for Hurricane response purposes. Just click here to visit the online registration center. Yo may also call 561-852-5044.

JFS is also seeking volunteers. According to the agency: “Volunteers play a critical role in our response efforts.  We are seeking volunteers for our Storm Response Team.  Volunteers will be screened and trained in advance and may be asked to help make phone calls to registered seniors or possibly to bring supplies and perform in-person wellness checks.   Those wishing to volunteer on the JFS Storm Recovery Team can do so by visiting here.
