Inspired by Jewish values, Jewish Family Service assists individuals and families by helping them build on their strengths to develop the skills and confidence to meet life’s challenges with dignity.
Jewish values are the foundation of our work at JFS. We are always guided by Rachmanus (compassion), Tzedeka (justice) and Tikun Olam (repairing the world) which require us to assist those among us in need as a Mitzvah (obligation).
Jewish Family Service will continue to be acknowledged as a significant, culturally sensitive community resource with programs that identify and meet the changing needs of clientele in the greater St. Paul area. Our egalitarian, collaborative workplace will continue to encourage staff to evaluate, reinvent and design effective programs. The reliability and depth of JFS experience makes us a desirable partner for other social service agencies who wish to develop programs that are complementary and efficient. Dedicated supporters with long-term financial commitments will sustain the mission of JFS by ensuring we attract and retain the highest quality professionals to staff our agency.
