A Letter from Our CEO


Welcome to the Jewish Community Housing Corporation! We hope to use this site as a continuing means to share information about how we are fulfilling our mission to provide quality housing and services for the seniors in our MetroWest Community (Essex, Morris, Sussex and northern Union Counties).

There will be constant updates about the various services and activities that we offer our residents either on our own or in collaboration with other community agencies, from transportation to meals to entertainment. You can also learn about the four apartment buildings for senior citizens that we have developed from scratch and continue to own and manage, including how to apply for an apartment for yourself or a loved one in one of these buildings.

We hope you will consider joining our team as a resident, a volunteer or a source of financial support. If you need more information, or would like to talk one-on-one, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you. We look forward to seeing you!

Harold Colton-Max
