The aftermath of a terrorist attack causes families to face financial hardships, and many fall below the poverty line with the loss of an income or expensive medical bills. For many, the government provided assistance is not sufficient in helping them cover their monthly expenses. OneFamily steps in to keep each family financially afloat, while encouraging them to achieve financial independence. With the generous help of over 70,000 donors worldwide, OneFamily has been able to provide financial assistance to over 4,000 victims of terror and their families since 2001. Financial assistance may be used for: Rent payments, medical bills, utility bills, transportation costs, food vouchers, tuition assistance, clothing, and treatments for total wellbeing.
OneFamily helps to find sponsors for family celebrations, like bar/bat mitzvahs and weddings. We award educational scholarships to students, and provide job training for victims who are forced to change professionals after an attack. Our Adopt-A-Family program pairs an international family with a family of victims for financial assistance and a beautiful, supportive friendship.
