Empowering people to thrive across the lifespan.

1 IN 3 SAN DIEGO FAMILIES
CAN’T MAKE ENDS MEET

Even with one parent working fulltime, one out of every four families is making difficult choices between food, rent, medical care, and other necessities. The resulting stress takes attention away from other core needs and makes it harder to think about future goals.

HALF OF ALL CHILDREN LIVE IN HOUSEHOLDS STRUGGLING TO AFFORD THE BASICS

Kids who grow up in poverty are at higher risk for childhood trauma, developmental delays, poor academic performance, and long-term health problems.

OLDER ADULTS
REPORT FEELING ISOLATED AND LONELY

Loss of loved ones and declining mobility leave many older adults struggling to get by on their own. Low fixed incomes and rising healthcare costs create additional barriers to staying healthy and secure as we age.

Across our community, people are working hard to keep up with rising expenses, to stay connected, and to give their children the a brighter future. Today, many San Diegans are struggling to put food food on the table, overwhelmed by crippling inflation, and isolated from others who can help.

At Jewish Family Service, we are committed to meeting people where they are in their journey and empowering them with the tools, resources, and support they need to move forward and thrive.
