My father is infamous for imparting words of knowledge for self-improvement. It is customary for him to make comments such as “first impressions are everything” to further his attempt to remind me that I must always put my best foot forward in every situation in order to assist others. JFS is no different! I came to this agency as a student intern in the counseling department and like many such as myself who deeply believe in the values of this agency and learned of the many ways in which to serve, I made the decision to take on additional roles to be of assistance to mankind. Simply put, JFS continues to “put their best foot forward” assisting people of various creeds and backgrounds.

I am particularly impressed with the many services rendered in attempts to “wrap around” their clients and their families identified within the community. Being that the hands of time are quickly moving in the direction of multimedia, JFS continues to follow the trends by making their presence known through media vehicles such as Facebook, engaging young adults in programs such as Future Net and Media Matters. Therefore, I am strongly convinced that this agency will continue to grow and serve the community making first impressions while placing their best foot forward.

JFS provides invaluable service to families in the community. I know of one client, and older gentleman who was having trouble making ends meet. After several dead-end phonecalls with other organizations, he connected with a Care Manager at JFS. The CM connected him with resources that same day - sending him home from the office with a bag full of food from the JFS food closet, helping him sign up for Meals on Wheels, and assisting him in applying for entitlements. This is just one of the many lives that JFS has changed.

This organization has a marvelous,caring and open-minded staff. When there is a need in the community,and it is brought to their attention, someone is there to step up to help. I picked up donated books at the home of the donor, and it resulted in her need s being brought to JFS staff's attention. There was contact made to help her.
