Be a Friend of JFS

By Richard Zelin
President of the Board of Trustees, JFS

Jewish Family Service helped 600 adults and seniors in our community this year. They learned how to prevent scams and how to protect their finances, engaged in social activities, received one-on-one counseling, and were helped accessing the supporting services that they deserve. At times, they even received direct financial assistance from Jewish Family Service, in the form of groceries delivered or energy bills paid.

Many of the seniors served by Jewish Family Service would have nowhere else to turn for help. They count on Jewish Family Service to help them live with dignity, security, and hope.  They count on Jewish Family Service – and Jewish Family Service counts on you. Your support makes it possible for us to help anyone in our community, regardless of their ability to pay.

The strength of a community is measured by the way it cares for its elders. Jewish Family Service fulfills this mission every day.  Please join us by making a donation. Any size gift will have a tremendous impact on our ability to continue caring for those in need in our community.

Thank you for considering a gift.
