JFS is a social service agency unique in the breadth of services we provide and people we touch. We have a holistic approach to care, offering programs for the mind, body and spirit.
Older Adult Services
Older adults want to remain as independent as possible for as long as possible. Care Management assists older adults maintain their ability to live in their own homes with as much independence as possible. Professional care managers provide help with problem solving and connection with needed support and resources. Help@Home offers older adults much-needed assistance with household repairs, chores, computer troubleshooting and more. JET Express provides safe, door-to-door transportation to help older adults stay independent and active.
Mental Health Services
The compassionate counselors at JFS offer counseling for all ages on all topics – including behavioral problems, depression, eating disorders, relationship challenges and grief counseling. We provide in-home counseling services for housebound older adults. Our Psychiatric Medication Access services ensure that all clients receive their necessary psychiatric evaluations and medications, regardless of their ability to pay. No insurance? No problem.
With the economic downturn and rising unemployment, people who never expected to need financial help now do. Fortunately, help is here. JFS offers financial and emotional support to those who need it most. We treat our clients with dignity and respect as we help with rent, utilities, medical needs and groceries.
Jewish Employment Services
Jewish Employment Services is a joint program of Jewish Family Services and Jewish Vocational Service offering job placement and counseling services to both job seekers and employers.
Family Life Education
JFS offers classes, events and workshops that provide invaluable information and nurturing networks. Our programs cover parenting, marriage and aging. Itís a family approach that works.
The JFS Community Chaplain works within the health care community to keep those who are ill and older adults connected to our sacred community. Working with trained volunteers, the rabbi provides spiritual counseling to those in need.
Dedicated JFS volunteers help us maximize every donation by providing transportation for older adults, delivering holiday meals to the homebound, visiting the ill and making the Extreme Yard Rakeover an annual success.
