ECR SJSP Line Break

If you still haven't found what you're looking for, call our JFS Access Line at (858) 637-3210. Our intake coordinator can connect you to a counselor or case manager who can work with you individually. All calls are completely confidential.

“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.”
