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.

As part of a community outreach program, Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine at Seton Hall University pairs medical students with people of all ages within the community. Nick Briski and Sara Hazaveh attended WINDS Café, an early memory loss program at JFS. The first year medical students had the opportunity to interact with our clients, joining them as they made collages with magazine clippings and played memory enhancing crossword puzzles and word searches. Both sessions were enjoyable for the students as well as the members of the WINDS Café group. #jfsclifton #windscafe #seniors #medicalstudents #hackensackmeridianschoolofmedicine @lmsa_hackensack #memoryloss
