“ECS gave me ideas, helped with my resume, and trained me in interviews
and my job search. I enrolled and completed all the classes I could at
JFS. They were great and always encouraging in a very dark and desperate
time. My Case Manager helped me with everything, as did ECS. Food,
housing, job search—everything! I can’t say enough about the people at
JFS. The staff are great human beings who helped me survive.”
