The Resources You Need. The Compassion You Deserve.
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.
At JF&CS, our staff of 300 employees and 2,200 active volunteers serves more than 14,000 people each year throughout eastern and central MA. JF&CS combines personalized, “high-touch” services with data-driven outcomes assessment to support continuous improvement.
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.
JF&CS is proud to be a caring presence in Greater Boston, on the North Shore, and in Central Massachusetts, helping people of all faiths, races, and ages with the challenges of life.
