Welcome to Jewish Family Services

We envision a world of economic and social justice; a world where individuals, families and communities care for and support themselves and one another. To this end, we provide strength and support to individuals and families in need, in a manner sensitive to Jewish values.

Most of our programs are open to the entire community

Please rest assured that the vast majority of our programs are open to the entire community, we do not discriminate on any grounds whatsoever. Religion does not play a part in our services and programs, although we are proud of our Jewish heritage and values.

Quote of the Day

Recognize yourself in he and she who are not like you and me.

Client Testimonials

“It’s taken some time up until now to finally have a better understanding of what triggers  some bad states of mind, by viewing situations as a whole. At first and for a little bit I felt very overwhelmed and hopeless because I wanted and expected change to happen and there was progress, but it came in small gradual steps. So far looking back overall, there has been a lot of progress and change. I have been learning strategies to deal with stressful situation by focusing on one thing at a time, controlling my breathing and realizing when I am over – focusing on a memory or thought pattern and trying to redirect and center myself. I feel Michael has been a good fit, he’s been a good listener during the sessions and helped me to have a different perspective.”
