Moving Forward Together

Jewish Community Integrated Services

Connecting the Jewish Community to Dedicated Care and Support

I don’t have enough to pay my rent this month. I’m worried about getting evicted. Is there rental assistance available?

My stress and anxiety grow every day as I try to balance work and overseeing my kids’ virtual school schedule. Who can I talk to?

Even while stretching my budget, I don’t have enough for groceries by the end of the month. Where can I find help with getting food?

I’m having a hard time. Everything is so overwhelming. I don’t even know where to start. Where can I turn for support?

Take the Next Step

We are living in challenging and unprecedented times. You are not alone.

The Jewish Community Integrated Services is a resource for individuals and families in the Jewish community who need assistance during these challenging times. We know that navigating the network of resources in San Diego can feel overwhelming.

Our professional Resource Navigators will work with you to understand your needs, identify which resources at JFS and in the community can best provide assistance, and partner on a plan to support you on your journey to greater stability. We know not all community members will recover from this health pandemic and financial crisis on the same schedule or at the same pace. And, we know that for many people in our community, asking for help is new, uncomfortable, and intimidating. Let’s talk and address your immediate needs and discover how we can partner to help you move forward.
