Welcome to

Jewish Family Service and Children’s Center of Clifton-Passaic

JFS is a social services and mental health agency that seeks to enhance the lives of individuals and families. We offer a comprehensive array of programs and services that address the community’s needs and challenges, including financial (assistance with applying for government benefits), vocational (career counseling and job placement), emotional (mental health evaluation, individual and family counseling, crisis intervention, sexual abuse and domestic violence services), social, educational (lectures, workshops), and practical (food pantry, advocacy). No one is turned away because of an inability to pay.

Our goal is to provide hope at every encounter with every person who comes through our door. Whether you reach out to us on the phone, send a donation, or volunteer, or let us know about a job opening in your company, that action helps to establish a meaningful connection.

A festive Thanksgiving meal.
Black Friday sales.
Cyber Monday savings.
You’ve enjoyed it all.
But for some, there is nothing.
After all, 30% off means nothing when you have nothing to spend.

Today, JFS is participating in the national day of generosity on #givingtuesday . It’s a day when your donation can make a big impact on those who need it most.

Your donation will help provide JFS clients with essential therapy, food pantry access, senior programming, special needs services, employment services, social skills and parenting groups, and domestic/sexual abuse education and prevention programming.

At JFS, we believe in building a better tomorrow for our clients. With your help, we can make it happen.

JFS clinical staff is participating in a CRAFT addiction training today. CRAFT (Community Reinforcement and Family Training) teaches skills including understanding triggers to use substances, positive communication and positive reinforcement strategies, problem solving, self-care, domestic violence precautions and how to get someone to accept help. The program is designed to help a loved one move toward treatment if it’s refused; reduce the alcohol or drug use even before treatment begins; and to improve the lives of concerned family and friends.

This training is in collaboration with the @jfcsnnj and the second part of the training will take place next week at their office in Teaneck.
