CEO Andrea Steinberg Honored with AJFCA Leadership Award

Posted on May 30, 2015

Association of Jewish Family & Children’s Agencies (AJFCA) honored Andrea Steinberg with the 2015 Leadership Award for her exemplary service to Jewish Family Service of Atlantic & Cape May Counties (JFS). This honor was created to recognize the efforts of individuals who work tirelessly for their local agencies. Andrea Steinberg, Chief Executive Officer of JFS, was presented with the Leadership Award during the AJFCA Annual Conference on May 3, 2015 in Miami, Florida.

One of the great examples of Steinberg’s leadership was during Superstorm Sandy. Nearly every day for weeks and even months, she was out in the community handing out coats, cleaning supplies, food and other necessities. In just three months, Andrea, along with the entire JFS staff, provided assistance to more than 8,000 community members. This immense response showcased how Steinberg leads and sets a great example for JFS staff, volunteers and the community as a whole.

As CEO, Andrea has grown the agency to help even more individuals and families in the community. Since she joined JFS in 2006, the agency has grown to 125 employees and serves more than 7,500 individuals and families each year. Under Steinberg’s leadership, JFS has furthered their reputation as the go-to agency in Atlantic County.
