MANY WAYS TO HELP

With your support, we are able to give hope and make a critical difference in the lives of the more than 3,000 people we serve and support annually. We offer a variety of ways to help, from a cash gift now to volunteering to estate planning.

Do lasting good in our community by enriching the lives of those who are vulnerable and struggling. There are many ways to use your talent, time and resources to support JFS from sharing our Facebook posts to creating a legacy gift. JFS is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
