CORT Supports JFS as Builder Donor

Posted on January 29, 2018

CORT Destination Services, a Berkshire Hathaway Company, has made a multi-year commitment to Jewish Family Service (JFS) as a Builder Donor. CORT has a long-standing relationship with JFS working with agency staff and clients as they transition from homeless to housed.  CORT partners with JFS for furnishing and housing necessities.  As an expansion of this partnership, CORT had pledged $5,000 to JFS over the next two years.

“CORT has partnered with a number of supportive and transitional housing organizations and other non-profit organizations and we are excited to add JFS to our list of partners,” said David Rossi, CORT Account Executive. “The company does this in order to provide high quality furniture at a low cost along with superior delivery service.”

CORT is a member of the Housing Community Development of New Jersey as well as Supportive Housing Association of New Jersey. The company has come up with a number of innovative ways to support organizations such as Jewish Family Service through sponsorships, volunteer work and more.

In addition to JFS, CORT has partnered with many organizations on both the local and national level including Volunteers of America Delaware Valley, Sky Light Center, New Hope Housing, Team Amvets, Hope for Veterans and many more.

CORT, a Berkshire Hathaway Company, is the nation’s leading provider of transition services and furniture solutions.

With more than 100 offices, showrooms and clearance centers across the United States, operations in the United Kingdom and partners in more than 70 countries, no other furniture company can match CORT’s breadth of services and companywide commitment to providing excellent customer service.

“It is wonderful to see businesses, like CORT, wanting to expand their giving capacities and become an agency donor,” said Andrea Steinberg, CEO of Jewish Family Service. “We greatly appreciate their commitment to helping the thousands of clients we serve each year.”

With the support of many generous donors, like CORT, Jewish Family Service serves more than 8,500 local individuals per year through a variety of services.  Responding to the needs of the community, JFS offers counseling, case management, and an array of other services including family and children’s programs, older adult assistance, autism support, Kosher Meals-on-Wheels, a community food pantry and diabetes advocacy.
