Assisting Project Ezra in its Commitment to Care for the Elderly

Project Ezra is a not-for-profit corporation founded in 1974 and operates out of Manhattan. Its primary purpose is to render assistance to needy elderly individuals of the Jewish religion, and others, residing primarily in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Project Ezra aids the elderly by providing companions to care for their needs, obtaining assistance from governmental and private agencies and facilities, and alleviating social isolation by sponsoring and maintaining social, cultural, and religious activities to enable elderly individuals to participate in their communities.

Jeffrey P. Rust and Hillary A. Frommer assisted Project Ezra’s board in pursuing a potential merger with Selfhelp Community Services, Inc., and with other strategic and corporate governance matters.
