Dear Friends of Jewish Family Services,

The passing year has been unusual and stressful, and COVID-19 added uncertainty and isolation to our lives and the lives of the people we serve.

During this time, JFS continues supporting our Edmonton community members who are struggling, fulfilling our Tikun Olam –“ Healing the World” mission. We offer Counselling, English classes, Community Support,  Seniors Support, and Home Support Services while adapting to online service delivery and enforcing safety protocols. In 2020 we added free support groups to help people with COVID-related anxiety to foster resiliency and connection.

We are asking for your donation so we can continue to offer accessible, equitable  compassionate and effective service during these times. Serving the Edmonton region since the 1950s, we could not have done it without our local community’s generous support. We know that these are trying times; our clients are experiencing increasing economic, emotional and mental stress and need greater assistance in these times of adversity.

We appreciate your support of JFS as we endeavour to meet the increasing demand on our resources to  meet community needs.
