The Edmonton community continues to grow and change around us. While change creates many opportunities for personal growth and enrichment, it also presents many unique challenges for community members.

Jewish Family Services helps you meet those challenges and, like the sturdy shoulder of a friend, we brace Edmonton community members during times of adversity, guiding them through their troubles with compassion and commitment.

We offer a number of programs and services to assist you. If we don’t have a program that suits your needs, we will try to find the right program with another agency. Our most important goal is helping you find what you need.

Edmonton Healing Centre for Grief and Loss

This is a program that assists people to deal with loss. The primary focus is to build skills that enable people to find meaning in their loss, improve their level of personal functioning, and become resilient to future loss. We offer small group sessions, presentations, and supportive counselling for bereaved individuals and those who serve and support them.
