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.

The suggestion that periods of quarantine might bring unprecedented productivity implies we should raise the bar, rather than lower it. Do not underestimate the cognitive and emotional load that this pandemic brings, or the impact it will have on your productivity, at least in the short term. Difficulty concentrating, low motivation and a state of distraction are to be expected. Adaptation will take time. Go easy on yourself. As we settle into this new rhythm of remote work and isolation, we need to be realistic in the goals we set, both for ourselves and our families.

Every morning lower your expectations…then lower them again. Then go away, do something else, come back and lower them one more time. Only then will you have a manageable workload.

Thank you to Karen P. Sackstein, certified Public Accountant from Fair Lawn for donating 13 laptops to our “Laptops for Seniors” program. These laptops - including a total of 50 donated laptops - will allow seniors, and others in our community to connect via Zoom or teletherapy during this isolating time. Doing good for others is an important protective factor under trauma conditions. Thank you to all of our donors!
