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.

JFS Program Highlight: Stanley Joel Feld Special Needs Program
JFS therapists work with families of children with special needs and deliver an array of support services including family counseling, the Project Leah respite program, the Rutie Peikes library and parent resource center, and SibShops for siblings.

Working It Out is a pre-vocational on the job experience which enables individuals with special needs to begin the journey to vocationally meaningful opportunities.

JFS also offers support coordination for individuals with developmental disabilities. Our DDD (Division of Developmental Disabilities) team works to evaluate the need for services such as medical support, vocational and employment services, day programs, residential facilities, and social and educational opportunities. The team reflects on each individual’s strengths, aspirations and goals. It also helps manage the budget allocated by the state for the purchase of supports and services.

Join us at our 6th Annual Breakfast to learn more about our programs that help our community!
