With your generous support, Jewish Family Service (JFS) provides help and hope to our clients. Our compassionate caring staff offers advocacy and expertise to caregivers and their elderly loved ones, those unable to meet the basic need for food, those with depression and anxiety and those seeking to grow their family through adoption.
The number of people who need JFS continues to grow. Our ability to meet the increasing demand for services depends on you and people like you who make a contribution to our Annual Campaign each year.
When you give to Jewish Family Service, you say "I care" to all those who turn to us in their struggle with unexpected life-changing challenges. With your help, we can repair the world - one person, one family at a time.
Because of you, JFS is here, providing hope and help to our clients when they have nowhere else to turn. Your support means JFS can provide our community with a social service safety net that helps them take on life’s challenges. If you’ve never needed services like these… count your blessings. And remember, that one of those blessings is the opportunity to help others with your gift to Jewish Family Service.
