What's NEW at JFS:

#GivingTuesday - Who's life will you change today?

Help us reach our #GivingTuesday goal of $1,000! When you give to JFS, you change lives. A worried family without access to food, a child struggling after the death of a parent, or a lonely Holocaust Survivor in need of a friendly visit; all turn to JFS for support. Click here to make a donation.

The Gift of Giving

This holiday season, give a gift that will have a lasting impact on families in our community. When you give a gift from JFS, you support counseling for a child in crisis, socialization for a lonely Holocaust Survivor, and housing for a veteran suffering from homelessness.
