Today’s Donation Makes Tomorrow’s Difference: Support JFS Friends Campaign

Posted on November 22, 2013

Dear Friend:

This year has been one of vulnerability for so many in our community. As a result, our work to serve the evolving needs has grown dramatically and we need your continued support. Thanks to the generosity of our Friends, Jewish Family Service provided essential support and critical care to thousands in need over the past year.

Village by the Shore officially welcomed its first members, service partners and volunteers. This rapidly expanding network offers concierge and professional services for boomer and older adults.

The Supportive Housing program expanded securing essential housing for more than twenty individuals who may otherwise have remained homeless or hospitalized.

JFS further expanded trauma counseling to offer services to children and adolescents in Cape May County. This specialty service provides critical support to families in their local community.

JFS has provided basic necessities, financial assistance, supportive housing, community linkages and case management to 8,000 residents impacted by Superstorm Sandy. A dedicated team will continue this critical work until the last need is met.

We are grateful to the many businesses, foundations and community members who support JFS enabling us to continue to expand our critical work in the community. As 2013 comes to a close, we are still $7,000 away from our end of year goal. Your gift will make a difference in the lives of even more community members in 2014. Please send your tax-deductible gift to Jewish Family Service at 607 N. Jerome Ave in Margate or donate online.

From our family to yours – best wishes for a wonderful holiday season and healthy New Year.
