Jewish Family Service offers basic emergency services to those with the most critical needs in the Jewish community, and, where possible, in the broader community. JFS caseworkers assist clients in assessing their situations and creating action plans that meet their immediate, critical needs with long-term stabilization as the goal.
Financial assistance may be available for emergencies like eviction prevention, move-in costs such as first/last months’ rent and security deposits, medical expenses, past due utility bills, transportation, or school clothes.
Case managers tailor services to help individuals and families achieve stability. Case managers may help with housing stability, food security, budgeting, employment, mental health support and referrals, substance dependence support and referrals, and any other self-sufficiency support needed.
