Jewish Campus in West Bloomfield.
Services will include monthly educa-
tional classes and support groups, an
interactive kiosk with direct access
to health care professionals, health
screenings, geriatric assessments and
on-site appointments with a geriatric
physician and nurse practitioner.
Jewish Fund grants also support
health care programs beyond the
Jewish community and help
strengthen relations between the
Jewish and general communities.
ALS of Michigan was awarded a
$25,000 grant to create a regional
center to provide augmentative com-
munication services to patients with
ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig's
disease). Currently, speech patholo-
gists and therapists have limited
access to the new communication
devices that can assist their ALS
patients, primarily because the

equipment is so expensive. The new
center will be open to all practition-
ers and will assure that patients are
prescribed the best device possible.
The Jewish Fund is partnering
with the Jewish Federation of
Metropolitan Detroit and United
Jewish Foundation to support the
United Way Community Services'
new Nonprofit Facilities Center. The
center will help human service agen-
cies throughout the region build and
maintain high quality facilities. The
combined grant totals $100,000 over
the next three years for the program.
The Jewish Fund was created in
1997 from proceeds of the sale of
Sinai Hospital to the Detroit
Medical Center. It has since awarded
$18.3 million in grants to expand
health and human services to resi-
dents of metropolitan Detroit. 111
