Every day, we welcome individuals, families, and older adults facing diverse challenges – financial emergencies, hunger, unemployment, housing, instability at home, and growing concerns with physical or mental health. When you are working hard, but falling short, case managers serve as committed partners in navigating the resources available to you and your family.
First, we listen. Then, we work together to problem-solve, find the most helpful options for your unique situation, and create a plan to support your immediate stability and long-term goals.
“There are a lot of good people out there, but to me you really shine…going above and beyond, in such an enthusiastic way. Life gets so hard for people, and you offer such kindness and hope with what you do.”
For many of our clients, the first point of connection is our onsite Corner Market, where anyone with a need can choose the right foods and personal care items for their family.
We are committed to supporting your ongoing success through individually tailored services, including food assistance, counseling, parenting workshops, and more.
The JFS Hand Up Loan program helps families access interest-free loans – for education, small business development, job training, car repairs, and more – so they can move toward a more secure future.
