JFS is the heart of the community and volunteers are the heart of JFS!

JFS Volunteers perform important tasks, helping fulfill the agency’s mission of service to the community. Volunteers add an extra dimension of warmth and personal attention that means so much to our clients. Volunteering is your opportunity to carry on the Jewish tradition of Tzedakah and Tikkun Olam. Every hour of time volunteered translates to direct service for family, friends and neighbors who struggle with critical issues related to aging, parenting, disability, poverty or job loss. JFS provides training and ongoing support to all of our volunteers.

We have several volunteer opportunities available. Are you looking for a meaningful experience? Come volunteer with us!
