6 year board member who has fallen in love with JFS! JFS provides services to ANYONE in need and operates a spectrum of services to allow individuals and families to be able to have stability in their life. From the professional mental health services to the food bank, career and employment center, gerontolgy services, special needs partnership family violence unit and more, JFS is about serving the needs of the whole community.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Seeing the thank you notes from clients that literally describe a life saved, dignity restored, a functioning family, emergency assistance provided and emotionally healthy, hopeful views of the future.

This organization is limited only by funds. JFS has the desire and ability to provide high quality, professional services to the community with very low overhead. JFS is one of only 2 social service agencies in North Texas to receive accrediation from the Council on Accrediation (all program areas).
