Guided by the wisdom and values of our tradition, Jewish Family & Child Service (JFCS) provides social services that improve the lives of adults, families, and children in the Jewish and general communities. We envision a future in which families thrive with access to the help they need to lead healthy, happy and productive lives.
In Jewish tradition, the tree is a symbol representing growth, responsibility and stability. The tree is grounded by three foundational tenets—to act justly, charitably, and to make the world a better place.
It is a tree of life to those who take hold of it, and happy are those who support it.
Like the tree, JFCS is rooted in helping others. Our programs—like protective branches of the tree—help people meet their basic needs; allow people to heal, age and thrive with dignity; and assist individuals with disabilities and their families to learn how to live full, independent lives while participating in their communities.
And also like the tree, JFCS thrives when tended to by caring individuals like you. Your support enables our tree to stay rooted in tradition and community values, and allows it to bear the fruit that nurtures others. Planting trees today provides for our vibrant future.
