These are uncertain times.
For more than 100 years, Jewish Family Service has been on the frontlines when our community is facing a crisis.
These are unprecedented times as our community takes widespread action to limit the impact of the COVID-19 (coronavirus). School and senior center closures mean children, families and older adults, already struggling to make ends meet, are missing out on essential items like free breakfast and lunch and access to reliable childcare. And tens of thousands of people across our community – who have been laid off, furloughed, or are unable to work in order to care for their children or older parents – are finding themselves unable to pay the rent, put food on the table, or fill a prescription because of lost wages.
Together, we can be there for our neighbors and offer much-needed relief and vital necessities.
Your support is critical in ensuring that we can continue to provide these vital community services.
Thanks to the generosity of Evelyn & Ernest Rady, all gifts made to the JFS Emergency Response Fund up to $360,000 will be matched until May 15.
