JFS exists to strengthen lives and build community. We would not be able to do this work without the generosity of passionate donors, foundations, companies, and volunteers.
Each gift to JFS gives parents and grandparents health and safety at home, vulnerable children tools they need to succeed in school and beyond, and young families and frail elders the food they need to get by.
