WHO DOES YOUR ORGANIZATION SERVE?
Jewish Family and Children’s Services exists to provide professional and volunteer services for the purposes of developing, restoring and maintaining the competency of families and individuals of all ages. Traditionally, Jewish Family and Children’s agencies carry a special responsibility within the Jewish community for reaching out to children, the aged, those with special needs, the alienated and the dependent, and for the resettlement and acculturation of refugees and immigrants. Jewish Family and Children's Services serves people of all faiths and backgrounds with our comprehensive system of care.
WHAT IS THEIR BIGGEST CHALLENGE?
In today's society, there is less of an importance placed on strengthening and nurturing the community you reside in. Instead, we have managed to isolate ourselves further and further from our neighbors. JFCS exists to provide professional and volunteer services for the purposes of developing, restoring, and maintaining the competency of families and individuals of all ages.
Though we all benefit from having the support of a community, it is especially important that children, seniors, those with special needs, refugees, immigrants, the alienated, and the dependent have this network of support. Building a strong, diverse community helps bridge the gap between generational, cultural, and economical differences.
