Welcome to Jewish Family Services

As a collective of support services for anyone in need, JFSE has been proudly serving the local community for over half a century. We offer myriad counselling services, in both a group and individual format, as well as home support services and refugee and crisis support.

Our ethos is tikkun olam, or heal the world. There is unnecessary suffering in the world, but we are committed to bettering the lives of our community.

Often, people think that we only serve Jewish people, which is not the case at all.  With the exception of a small number of programs meant specifically for Holocaust survivors, JFSE serves anyone in the community, regardless of ethnicity or creed. We owe our genesis to the Jewish community, to which we are still closely connected and supported, however, we aim to serve anyone in need.

JFSE in the time of COVID-19

As we all transition to a new normal, please note that most of our services are still available. Our Home Support Services are still operational, and all of our caregivers have been thoroughly trained from First Aid, Contagious Disease Protocol, through Trauma and Dementia Informed, to the latest developments and technology. 

Our Counselling Services are all available in person, by phone or video chat. 

Client Testimonials

“My experience working with you and with your help continues to astound me and I am grateful for our weekly sessions. While I have always been a fan of therapy as a tool, I actually look forward to this time as I know I will leave in better health than I arrived. Thank you for your compassion and genuine interest in health as a big picture mental/physical/emotional collage.”
