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 (training and referral), 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, that action helps to establish a meaningful connection.
