The Actors Fund
The Actors Fund was founded 130 years ago at a time when actors, the “vagabond travelers” were held in very low regard, earned little - and most died poor. Today The Actors Fund is a nonprofit, nationwide human services organization providing programs that support the unique, essential needs of all who work in entertainment and the performing arts - on stage or camera and behind the scenes. The Actors Fund assists those working in theater, film, television, radio, music, dance, opera and circus. The Fund is a safety net, offering quality services for and individual attention to our community, giving all a responsive place to turn in times of need or crisis. The Oram Group is helping the organization develop a new strategic plan.

JSL is focused on redirecting institutional care to small group “green” houses for those needing some level of institutional care, keeping people in their homes where possible and providing in-home medical and nursing services thereby conserving resources and more important serving people humanely. Founded a century ago in Rochester JSL began as “The Home,” serving the city’s Jewish population exclusively – at a time when such facilities were segregated. Today JSL is regionally renowned, nationally regarded and serves all comers. Oram’s role was to plan and serve as consultants to the new campus development that includes a $25 million capital campaign that is moving along on time and under budget.
