Claims Conference – Holocaust Survivor Services

We provide social welfare services for eligible Holocaust survivors through funding from The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany (Claims Conference).

Our compassionate and caring Case Managers have chosen to work with Holocaust Survivors, in part because of their personal experiences with Survivor family members. They are passionate about enhancing the lives of their clients, well versed in their complex psychological and physical needs, and are dedicated to working with their clients for the long term, providing trust and continuity. Case Managers provide services in multiple languages.

We address emergency financial and home support needs and look for solutions to support individuals to live independently as long as possible by providing:

  • Support to eligible Holocaust Survivors with assistance to apply for any compensation or pensions from the Claims Conference and/or German government.
  • Home Support Services.
  • Connection to cultural and social supports.
  • Support in applying for additional resources offered by government agencies.
  • Advocacy.

A non profit organization, Claims Conference secures material compensation from the Government of Germany for Holocaust survivors around the world, as indemnification for suffering and losses resulting from persecution by the Nazis.

If you or someone you know is a Holocaust survivor, you may be eligible for all or some of these programs. For further details and eligibility criteria, please contact us via email at or call 403-287-3510.

A Holocaust survivor is considered a person who suffered persecution for being Jewish, lived in a Ghetto, survived a concentration camp and/or who had to flee or evacuate from the place of persecution. It is interesting that even after many years of work we still encounter survivors that never applied for any German compensation. We are honoured to help them to apply for compensations that are provided by the German government and support the complex application process.
