The Elder Support Network is a continental delivery system that links isolated, frail elderly who live far from family and friends with an alternative support system provided by a Jewish family service agency in their community. Its success illustrates that the Jewish community will make use of programs of a continental nature and that it is possible to fund a continental program.
