What We Do
Jewish Family Service's mission is to strengthen and preserve life in the Jewish community and the community at large through every stage of the life cycle. For more than a century, we have provided crucial aid and support to the community. With the best professional and licensed staff, JFS is wholly focused on providing the services individuals, couples and families require when facing challenges in their lives. Financial assistance, counseling, Project Tzedakah, Project Dreidel and family life education; these are among the ways that JFS restores dignity, hope and meaning when it seems like life’s struggles appear insurmountable.
