As the coronavirus pandemic grows, Jewish Family & Children’s Service is on the frontline, taking immediate measures to ensure the well-being of vulnerable people who desperately need help. Now, we turn to you for help.

We urgently need to raise at least $500,000 in the next three months to help provide services and rapidly respond to the growing needs in our community.

  • Family Table provides food to almost 600 households per month. We are now stretching our capacity to serve an additional 200 households per month.
  • Emergency supplies of diapers and baby wipes are being distributed to low-income families who can no longer work due to lost jobs or closed child care centers.
  • We are providing dedicated support to over 300 Holocaust survivors to ensure they are not alone and their basic needs are met.
  • Our 24-hour residential programs for people with disabilities have increased staffing by 20% to support residents every day, all day, while their day programs are closed.

For more than 150 years, caring during crisis has been at the very core of our work, and JF&CS has been a lifeline to thousands of individuals and families. You are part of our community. You can help the most vulnerable among us during these challenging times by donating to JF&CS today.

Thank you for your kind generosity.
