About Our Friends Campaign

For over 30 years, your neighbors, friends, and family have moved toward self-sufficiency through our services and community connections. JFS holds a unique role in our community for individuals of all faiths needing personal, direct, and immediate support for anticipated and unexpected circumstances. Our services and programs have evolved to meet community needs. As our community is aging, JFS has responded with programs like Wise Options care management, Staying Connected transportation services and The Music & Memory program. We look forward to being here for the community, meeting ongoing and future need with your help! Join us by becoming a Friend for our 2018 campaign today.
