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

Though I am often in the depths of misery, there is still calmness, pure harmony and music inside me.

Client Testimonials

“Dave is outstanding. I can’t say enough about him! He really takes the time to understand and that is so important to me. He also remembers details of what I have said in previous sessions – not sure how he does it as many patients would no doubt make this difficult but it is so appreciated.”
