Partners For Life

People helping people ..
that's been the tradition of De-
troit's Jewish community
through the annual Allied
Jewish 'Campaign of the
Jewish Welfare Federation.
This year, the Campaign is
seeking to raise more dollars
than ever before to further the
work of its member agencies.
Locally, in Israel and over-
seas, services supported by
this community's contribul
Lions help people of all ages
with a variety of needs.
The following profile is the
first in a series highlighting
some special individuals
whose lives are touched by
our community's support of
the Campaign.
THE PERSON. Cynthia
Sherman is a busy lady ...
productive worker, volunteer
with children and lover of
life. Cynthia Sherman is one
of 200 mentally handicapped
adults participating at the
Jewish Vocational Service's
workshop program in Oak
Park.
On a typical day, you
might find Cindy collating or
shrink-wrapping products for
the workshop's subcontracted
manufacturers (for which she
is paid on a piece rate basis)
or assembling hospital bas-
kets. If there's time, she'll
take part in a phySical condi-
tioning class or help out with
severely disabled persons in
the pre-vocational area.
Cindy will be the first to
tell you she's come a long
way. With the everyday liv-
ing skills she's learned as
part of the JVS program,
she's able to control her diet
and her diabetic condition,
arrange her own transporta-
tion and work on budgeting
her money.
What's she most proud of?
In addition to the hard-won
degree of independence she's
achieved, it's her work with
children, for which she re-
ceived a commendation. For
the last several summers,
Cindy worked as a paid assis-

tent at the Burton Elemen-
tary School's summer play
program in Huntington
Woods. Although she requires
close supervision, Cindy also
volunteers at area schools
and is honing her job-seeking
skills through the JVS job
club.
THE AGENCY. A member
agency of the Jewish Welfare
Federation and funded in
part 'by its Allied Jewish
Campaign, the Jewish Voca-
tional Service helps people
like Cindy and thousands of
others each year.
In addition to the Oak
Park workshop, there is a
workshop at the JVS Detroit
location, providing vocational
rehabilitation to physically
and emotionally disabled per-
sons. The agency also pro-
vides job placement, career
development and educational
counseling service to 7,000
people a year. There is a pro-
gram providng rehabilitation
to workers injured on-the-job,
as well as special programs
for senior adults.

As a tribute to his late wife, Lucille, a longtime Phonogift volunteer,
Sol Kroll joined his sister Jeanette Solway and other friends during
the Federation Women's Division Phonogift telethon last week.
Shown are, from left, Solway, Kroll, Eva Lang and Joan
Hammond. Phonogift raised $120,000 for the Allied Jewish
Campaign.
