Incorporated as the Jewish Old Folks Home in 1907 to provide housing for the homeless and those who no longer could maintain their homes, the Jewish Home for the Aged was at one time a state-of-the-art facility in the heart of the Detroit Jewish community. After expansion to the northwest suburbs with two full-scale nursing homes, financial and management difficulties in the 1980s led to contraction of services. The majority of the records of the Home cover the creation and operation of the facilities, with an emphasis on events that occurred in the 1980s.
