Founded in 1939, Jewish Vocational Service of MetroWest (JVS) is a nonprofit community-based vocational rehabilitation, training, health and human services agency serving New Jersey residents and businesses on a nonsectarian basis. The agency provides a broad range of services for individuals from age 14 to 100+ throughout the State. Services include career counseling; life-work planning; aptitude and psychological testing; educational planning; vocational evaluation; customized skills training; émigré resettlement and citizenship education; English as a Second Language and adult basic education; eldercare services; vocational rehabilitation; case management; job placement; and customized, on-site training for employees at the workplace. The mission of JVS is to use its special knowledge and skills to help members of the community maximize their abilities and potential and become economically self-reliant, productive citizens.

JVS' highest priorities are the individuals who need its help the most: people with disabilities; people who require new skills to obtain or maintain employment; individuals transitioning from welfare to work; unemployed family wage earners; dislocated, downsized employees; newly arrived immigrants or refugees; mature adults; frail elderly individuals; and the next working generation.
JVS regularly adapts its service offerings to meet critical client needs. The following programs have been added in the last few years. Wellness Works provides onsite access to health services and health education, thereby improving health outcomes and productivity for at-risk clients with disabilities and students attending JVS’ ESL and vocational skills classes. A document scanning and imaging bureau and onsite café provide training and employment for JVS’ clients. The Career Center assists teens and adults diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder to learn the skills they need to obtain employment and gain independence.
