JCAT PRO presents "Driving Miss Daisy"

September 4-22

By Alfred Uhry • Directed by Michael Andron
Featuring lillian Andron, James Samuel Randolph and Paul Louis

Winner of the 1988 Pulitzer Prize and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Play. Academy Award for Best Picture. A warm-hearted, humorous and affecting study of the unlikely relationship between an aging, crotchety white Southern lady, and a proud, soft-spoken black man. A long-run Off-Broadway success and an Academy Award-winning film.
"The play is sweet without being mawkish, ameliorative, without being sanctimonious." —NY Times. "…a perfectly poised and shaped miniature on the odd-couple theme." —NY Post. "Playwrights Horizons has a winner in this one…gives off a warm glow of humane affirmation." —Variety. "DRIVING MISS DAISY is a total delight." —NY Daily News.

2019 Holocaust Survivor Critical Supports Grant Application - Guidelines

OBJECTIVE:

Programs to address the critical needs of Holocaust survivors to keep them from having to move from their homes into institutional care. Grant funds can be used to resolve active crises facing survivors or for preventative services. You are not required to conduct extensive research to make your case; we are seeking your creative thoughts based on your experience with this population.

It is hoped that this funding will help to fill the gap for identified emergency needs – it is not the intention for these funds to pay for daily living costs or for services already provided through Claims Conference or other funding.

DEFINITION OF A SURVIVOR:

For the purpose of this grant, funding is not limited to the German government’s definition of a survivor: however, individuals born after the end of February 1946 are not considered Holocaust survivors under this grant. Based on those qualifications, the definition of survivors for this grant is expanded to include anyone who had to flee from their home due to the Nazi invasion with no requirement to have lived in certain countries or to have been interned in a concentration camp.

REQUIREMENTS:

All of the program work funded under these grants must apply the principles of PCTI (person-centered trauma informed) care. PCTI care is a holistic approach to service provision that supports the dignity, strength, and empowerment of trauma victims by incorporating knowledge about the role of trauma in victims’ lives in agency programs, policies and procedures. (Eisinger and Bedney, 2018)

All sub-grantees must attend a mandatory training on PCTI on August 22, 2019. Details about this training will be shared closer to its date.

RESOURCES:

IF you are not familiar with PCTI, a good primer from the U.S. Administration for Community Living can be found at here

SUBMISSION PROCESS:

All completed proposals must be e-mailed to Fran Katz at fkatz@gmjf.org no later than 4 pm on Thursday, August 8. 2019. Questions regarding your proposals may be e-mailed to Fran during the submission period but they must be sent before Tuesday, August 6 at 10 am in order for you to receive a timely response.

Grant funding will be awarded in late August. Programs can take place from September 1, 2019 through May 1, 2020.

Requests should range from $5,000 - $50,000.
