For more than a century, Jewish Family Service of St. Paul (JFS) has strengthened our community by providing an array of human services that reflect the Jewish traditions of loving kindness, dignity, compassion and tikkun olam—repairing the world.

JFS Services

Today, we assist more than 3,500 people annually who face expected and unexpected circumstances in their lives. What they share is a need for someone to help them navigate life’s challenges and difficulties, so they can remain healthy and safe as they work toward a better and more secure future.

JFS serves clients without regard to race, ethnicity, creed, religion, national origin, gender, disability or sexual orientation.

We offer bilingual case management services for those who do not speak English.

“Because of the services I receive from JFS, my husband and I are able to continue to live independently in our apartment. Thank you!”
