The Towers at Tower Lane is one of four recipients nationwide to be awarded a grant from Brandeis University's Chaplaincy Innovation Lab with support from the Charles Revson Foundation. The project will expand chaplaincy services to residents, families, and community members of The Towers. Staff member Sarah Moskowitz, the residence’s volunteer coordinator and spiritual leader, will head this project over the course of the year.
The project will help address loneliness, and support families, residents, and community members in making life transitions through a Jewish lens. The grant will enable The Towers to provide both individual and group spiritual care. Both Sarah Moskowitz and Ruthie Greenblatt will attend year-long classes and seminars, and receive mentorship through this special program.
Thanks to a generous Impact Grant from the Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven, The Towers is also delivering kosher Shabbat meals monthly to families in our area. Those families will also be eligible to receive spiritual care through the Chaplaincy Innovation Lab/Revson Foundation grant.
Weaving spiritual wellness into The Towers’ work is just one component of its Proactive Partner Model, which provides person-centered and evidence-based programming that is driven by outcomes and data. The Towers will track the impact of this work to understand its effect and how its programming evolves moving forward. The goal for this year’s work is to develop a new approach that will continue well beyond the life of the grant.
Associate Vice President Jennifer Bayer said The Towers is “thrilled and grateful to have received this funding from Brandeis University. This type of grant partnership and work has the ability to move our organization and community forward significantly. We are incredibly grateful, not only for the funding but also for the resources and education that will be provided throughout the life of the grant and beyond.”
