We believe that all children deserve opportunities that promote healthy physical, social and emotional development. JFS is committed to providing services that enable each child to feel loved, cared for and valued by the community:
- Alternatives to Addiction
This program provides confidential, supportive assistance to those struggling with addiction.
- Big Pals/Little Pals
This program matches Jewish children with Jewish adults who serve as positive role models and mentors.
JFS offers professional, compassionate counseling specifically for children and their families.
- Intimate Partner Abuse
JFS partners with Family Services of King County to provide Kids' Club, a 12-week series of classes for children who have witnessed domestic abuse.
- Family Life Education
JFS offers a wide variety of Family Life Education events and workshops year-round for people in need of support, guidance and expertise in order to strengthen relationships and connections to community.
- Summer Camp Scholarships
Children from low-income families may receive scholarships to attend Jewish summer camps. More than one child per family may apply; applications begin in March.
JFS collaborates with a wide variety of community organizations who provide a multitude of services for children and youth. We hope you find this list helpful and informative.
