Description of Organization:

The Blue Card was established by the Jewish community in Germany in 1934, to help Jews already being affected by Nazi restrictions through loss of jobs, forcibly closed businesses and other forms of oppression.
In 1939, The Blue Card was reestablished in the United States to continue aiding refugees of Nazi persecution resettling in America. After the Holocaust, the mission of the organization was expanded to help survivors of the Shoah from all European countries. The Blue Card is the only national organization in the United States whose sole mission is to help needy Holocaust survivors, providing financial resources that improves the daily lives of needy Shoah victims. The Blue Card provides: monthly cash stipends, Telephone Emergency Response System assistance, cash emergency assistance, medical assistance, dental assistance, home care, week-long vacations in a rural setting, special holiday grants, birthday grants, cancer assistance program, and health precautionary services that permit survivors to live with dignity in their own homes.
