Chance encounters

Allan Nahajewski I Contributing Writer

ernie Moray is 92. But in his mind, he's
48.
And that's his secret for staying
young. That's why he's still able to work six days
a week as chairman of the Gorman's furniture
chain based in Southfield. He works out most
mornings with a personal trainer. "I can still
move furniture with the younger folks:' he says.
In December, Moray was recognized at a national
furniture industry conference in Naples, Fla., as

was divorced, recovering from
a closed-head injury and post-
concussive disorder from a
recent auto accident, not working
and my group health coverage ran
out from my last job;' said Peggy
Berman of Southfield. "I needed
help!"
While looking for possible
resources at Jewish Family Service
(JFS) three years ago, Berman
discovered she was a candidate for
Project Chessed. She had never
heard of the JFS program, now 10
years old and being phased out
with the advent of the Affordable
Care Act (ACA), also known as
"Obamacare"
Project Chessed, an innovative
health care program that became a
model for others across the coun-
try, served nearly 10,000 individu-
als in the Jewish community by
providing services, medication and
even surgery from local volunteer
physicians, hospitals, pharmacies
and companies.
"I feel blessed that the people at
Project Chessed helped me regain
my health and become a whole per-
son;' Berman said. "They found out
what services I needed, assigned a
case worker to me and recommend-
ed a new doctor. They helped man-
age my prescription costs, some-
times paying when I had no funds.
With the doctor's help, I lost weight
and changed to a healthier lifestyle.
I'm not completely without pain, but
I can work with what I've got"
Today, Berman works as a job
coach in community-based services
at JVS, helping individuals explore
and achieve career goals and
opportunities.
