Donations to The Griswold Cares Foundation by Griswold Home Care franchisees, friends, and family exceeded expectations in 2014 and allowed the Foundation to award $30,000 worth of grants to 38 nonprofit organizations across the nation. The Jewish Pavilion's Orlando Senior Help Desk was one of the organizations chosen to receive a grant. It is the mission of The Jewish Pavilion to enhance the quality of life of our elders and their families by strengthening their connection to the community.

The Jewish Pavilion's Orlando Senior Help Desk is a free public service providing information and referrals to help individuals navigate the senior maze. A senior resource specialist is available to answer questions concerning housing, health care, social concerns or anything regarding seniors in the Central Florida area. Social worker Emily Newman will walk callers through the steps and resources available in what can often be a daunting and unnerving process. The Orlando Senior Help Desk is a non-profit agency that caters to seniors of all faiths, and is sponsored by generous partners and donors.

The Griswold Cares Foundation, a private charity established in 2010, was created by Griswold Home Care to further the company's belief that care for the elderly and disabled should be available to all and not just the privileged few. The Griswold Cares Foundation's vision is a future in which all seniors and adults with disabilities, including those with limited financial means, will have the opportunity to live a full life and age with dignity in the comfort of their own homes.
