Caring for Generations

Agency Leadership

Board of Directors

Rimma Zelfand and Jamie GrossmanEach year we take a moment to reflect not only on all that JF&CS has accomplished in 153 years but also our mission as we head into the future. From providing support to an isolated and overwhelmed new mother to companionship for a frail, isolated older adult, we improve the lives of the most vulnerable in our community through a continuum of care across all stages of life.


As we look to the future, our priorities are to ensure the sustainability of our current services and to build upon our core programs so that we can serve even more people. We constantly monitor the relevance of our services so that we may meet the changing needs of our community and we are flexible enough to adapt to those needs.


JF&CS improves the lives of more than 14,000 people each year with 40 programs throughout Eastern and Central Massachusetts. We are in the business of strengthening families, enhancing quality of life for older adults, people with disabilities, and so many more. We serve as a safety net for people in need.


Of course we could not accomplish any of this without the most talented and wonderful staff throughout the entire agency and we are so proud of the tremendous collaboration that takes place between departments in order to bring the best possible care for each individual client. We are also fortunate to have a Board made up of caring and passionate individuals who are constantly asking what more they can do for JF&CS. They demonstrate an unrivaled excitement for the work we do and we look forward to building on that excitement not only within our Board, but throughout the agency, and ultimately, the entire community.


Together with your assistance – through your philanthropic support and/or your efforts as a JF&CS volunteer – we can ensure that the services we provide today will be there for all who need them, today, tomorrow, and for generations to come.
