Ira Schor
Chief Operations Officer

I have had the good fortune to spend the past 29 years of my career with JF&CS, an organization with deep roots in the community, talented and dedicated staff, and a forward-looking approach to client services. My role at JF&CS has provided me with the exciting opportunity to blend my organizational, clinical, leadership, and social work skills, and apply them to areas of strategic planning, compliance and risk management, and staff development. Prior to working at JF&CS, I was the Director of Outpatient and Emergency Services at a community mental health clinic in Milford, MA, and a practicing mental health clinician.

Wendy Wilsker
Chief Advancement Officer
I am honored to serve as the Chief Advancement Officer at Jewish Family & Children’s Service. Throughout my life, my Jewish identity has been deeply entwined with tikkun olam (repairing the world) and tzedakah (justice). It is a joy for me to forge meaningful relationships with donors, connecting them with philanthropic opportunities that will truly improve the lives of the 14,000 clients JF&CS serves each year. For more than 25 years, I have had the privilege of serving the non-profit sector in varied capacities at Combined Jewish Philanthropies, American Jewish Committee, the Rashi School, Lahey Hospital, and Lindauer Global.
