History

Ezras Cholim of Phoenix a project of Ezras Cholim of Arizona was started in 2015 by a group of dedicated volunteers to serve the needs of people facing illness in the Greater Phoenix Jewish community.

Tired of seeing only walls and need some company…?

Ezras Cholim volunteers from our community are available for hospital visitation. Let us take the loneliness out of your hospital stay. We are only a phone call or a click away!

Do you feel like the only one involved in your struggle…?

We at Ezras Cholim of Phoenix are here to tell you that you are NOT alone. Our sole mission is to bring our community together through volunteering individuals, to show you that there are others who care about your struggle and illness.


We provide logistics to help you manage a Rehab stay…

If you or a family member is being cared for at an Arizona Rehab facility, please do not hesitate to contact us.
