Your donation helps strengthen and empower individuals and families.
Your gift could supply books and toys for play therapy, help a family access professional counseling services, stock the food pantry with essential supplemental items, or enrich the lives of seniors who attend cultural celebrations like our annual Senior Adult Purim and Chanukah Parties.
There is no better way to honor and recognize the ones you love and respect than with a Tribute Card from Jewish Family Services. For weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, b’nai mitzvot, thinking of you reminders and sympathy in remembrance at times of loss, Tribute Cards honor those close to you while also supporting the work of JFS.
With each Tribute Card donation, we send a beautiful card acknowledging your thoughtfulness to the person and/or family that you are recognizing.

The JFS Food Pantry provides personal care items and other necessities to individuals and families in need. As a special touch, during holidays like Rosh Hashanah and Passover, the holiday brigade (our volunteers) deliver special bags filled with traditional foods and holiday treats.
With an emphasis on maintaining dignity and restoring independence, JFS invites those who qualify to choose specific menu items when filling their pantry order.
Pantry recipients leave with more than just groceries – they leave with a feeling that the community cares about them and that they are not alone.
