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


Our sorrows and wounds are healed only when we touch them with compassion.

- Buddha

“Another amazing session!! I feel so much more prepared for the rest of my day, Michael is very compassionate and very caring. I find him to be very soft spoken and easy to talk to and I can trust him which is not easy for me to trust.”
