JFS’ Newest Initiative Village by the Shore Now Accepting Members

Posted on November 01, 2013

Jewish Family Service of Atlantic and Cape May Counties (JFS) is excited to announce their newest initiative, Village by the Shore, is now accepting members. This non-denominational program offers services and socialization for Atlantic County adults (50+ years) through a unique, concierge style. Individuals can now take advantage of a special introductory rate of $18 per month or $180 a year.

While the Village is not a physical place, it is a movement enhancing the lives of individuals to get the most from their community at any stage of life. One call offers an easy “one-stop shopping” experience with access and referrals to high-quality preferred service providers, specialists and social services.

From managing the household, to social and cultural learning and staying healthy, Village members have access to a number of activities and services. Benefits include resource and referral concierge, friendly visits, phone check-in’s, care coordination and transportation as well as local lectures, concerts, workshops and classes. From savings on landscaping to getting connected with trustworthy and reliable Service Partners, there are many benefits of membership.

“Village by the Shore offers a much needed service for community members and we are excited for the opportunity to help older adults stay in their homes as long as possible,” said Lisa Walker, Director of Village by the Shore. “With the special introductory rate, now is a great time to sign up and receive the benefits, services and convenience that a Village by the Shore membership offers.”

JFS looks to provide a wide range of services to its members and is expanding its Service Partner Network, adding businesses ranging from contractors to handymen to restaurants. As a Service Partner, businesses and organizations have the opportunity to showcase their services, build their business reputation and expand their client base. By providing special discounts and offers, Service Partners are a top choice for Village members.

Volunteers provide the structure to Village by the Shore; working in many capacities they enrich the lives of community members. Want to help others while sharing your skills, expertise and talents? How about volunteering in your profession, hobby or favorite past time? Village by the Shore is always looking for volunteers to help with a number of services including gardening, technology assistance, transportation, office assistance, meal delivery, friendly visits and many more. Often times, members become volunteers and volunteers become members.
