Emergency Services


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.
