Support JFS

JFS Edmonton’s ethos is based upon the Hebrew belief of Tikkun Olam, which loosely translates to “heal the world.” Since our genesis in the 1950s, JFS has been acting as a soft place to land for anyone in need, but in order to provide this unyielding support to vulnerable members of our community, we need your assistance. 

Your donation could help:

  • a young teenager suffering from acute anxiety that requires weekly counselling
  • a traumatized Canadian newcomer in need of assistance navigating social supports
  • a heartbroken widower  requiring grief and loss support

Our services are open to the whole community, regardless of creed or ethnicity. 

We are a soft place to land, for anyone in need providing a holistic approach to wellbeing. To ensure our continued viability and our capacity to care for people in crisis, we need your assistance. Your support helps:

  • Canadian Newcomers: includes culture and language courses , and instruction on navigating available social services.
  • Counselling Services: thanks to our sliding scale for payment,we are able to serve anyone in need of counseling. Many of our clients seek counselling to manage emotional duress surrounding abuse, poverty, death of a loved one or even loneliness. 
  • Anyone in crisis: whether a client is fleeing an abusive relationship, on the brink of poverty, or just in need of an emotional support, for many, we are the last resort. 
  • Providing quality Home Support Services: for the elderly and disabled who are in need of care but unable to pay.

Show us your heart of gold and help us to heal the world. Donate now!
