About Us

Who We Are

EZRA works to prevent homelessness, relieve hunger, reduce isolation, and ease other barriers to self-sufficiency. In addition, EZRA offers social activities and holiday celebrations to ensure that Jews who live in poverty remain actively connected to their heritage. EZRA is funded through the Jewish United Fund/Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago and is administered by JCC Chicago. EZRA provides assistance to Jews and non-Jews. Check out our Programs page.


The Dina and Eli Field EZRA Multi-Service Center is dedicated to Tikkun Olam, or "repairing the world," and helping our community members live with dignity through advocacy and compassionate, collaborative care for those experiencing a crisis or isolation.


As long as there is hardship and loneliness in our community, our doors will be open to help those in need.
