About Us


JFS is a community leader that empowers people to achieve fulfilling lives.


We provide exceptional social services, grounded in Jewish values, to support individuals and families from diverse religious, cultural and economic backgrounds.

Our programs strengthen our community by strengthening the individual–from resettling refugee families, to supporting New Americans to become self-sufficient, counseling young adults through life’s transitions, equipping older adults to age well, protecting elders from abuse, leading caregiver support groups, and helping individuals enhance their Jewish connections.


We value and honor the fundamental sanctity and worthiness of all human beings, Tselem Elohim.
We demonstrate dignity and respect in every aspect of our work, Chesed.
We put into practice a commitment to heal and repair the world, Tikun Olam.
We operate with fiscal efficiency and integrity, Haginut Ba’asakim.
