Jewish Family & Children’s Service cares for individuals and families by providing exceptional human services guided by Jewish traditions of social responsibility, compassion, and respect for all members of the community.
JF&CS fulfills its mission by providing direct services and advancing best practices that support the resilience and well-being of its target populations: new parents and their children, older adults and family caregivers, children and adults with disabilities, and people experiencing poverty, hunger, or domestic abuse.
For more than 150 years, Jewish Family & Children’s Service has been helping individuals and families build a strong foundation for resilience and well-being across the lifespan. Through an integrated portfolio of more than 40 programs reaching communities throughout Eastern and Central Massachusetts, JF&CS focuses on meeting the needs of new parents and their children, older adults and family caregivers, children and adults with disabilities, and people experiencing poverty, hunger, or domestic abuse.
Over the past decade, JF&CS has tripled in size to meet the growing need for our programs. Our staff of 400 employees and 2,200 active volunteers now serves more than 14,000 people each year throughout eastern and central MA. While continuing to provide personalized, “high-touch” services, JF&CS is increasingly committed to data-driven outcomes assessment to measure program impact and support continuous improvement.
