Bill’s Story: “I Would Not Be Alive Without You”


Meet Bill.

A fixed income and the climbing cost of living make it hard for him to cover household expenses. For many older adults in San Diego like Bill, choosing between food and medication is a daily struggle. And without supportive services to fill in the gaps, their well-being can quickly disintegrate. That’s where we come in.

JFS Aging Specialists work closely with older adults to assess their individual needs and create a custom care plan. From assistance with nutrition and transportation to financial security and physical health, out team addresses their most urgent needs so every older adult can age with dignity.

Bill recently wrote us a letter to say thanks:

“Jewish Family Service restores dignity and humanity every day. It’s the bright light of independence at the end of a dark time. My struggles will continue for a while, but I would not be alive without you. Thank you for making me feel like a real person and giving me so much hope!”

We’re so grateful for his kind words. As one of the friendliest faces around JFS, Bill gladly shares his story with anyone who’ll listen. Take a look at the video above to see how our Corner Market changed Bill’s life.
