I have been a board member and volunteer for over 15 years and can say that Jewish Family Service of San Diego has given me much more of a reward than I could have ever expected. I'm involved as a volunteer with one of the JFS Senior Centers and I derive a lot of satisfaction from seeing the benefits that it provides to our seniors during their difficult aging process. The organization is very efficiently run - proof of which is their 4 Star Charity Navigator rating which is given to less than 5% of all non-profits in the country.

I have been so impressed with the directors and staff of JFS (San Diego) for ten years now. One director calls hundreds of people a year to help raise money for seniors, and he helped start a senior center. Another director had a passion to build the top fundraising gala in San Diego, and the Gala nets almost $1 mm per year now. Another director is a busy partner at a top law firm, with young kids, who still spends hundreds of hours a year helping the agency. A past director first volunteered to help people when he volunteered to serve in WWII at age 18, and when I started serving, he was always in the room as a voice of wisdom and care for the clients. Heroes abound, at JFS. The client letters touch your heart, and the staff really care about clients. One has JFSSD on his license plate, another told us how he feels the responsibility to be sure all emails to the information line get a good, timely, caring answer, and other staffers have built so many innovative programs, ranging from a food pantry staffed by teenagers, to a "Rides and Smiles" program for volunteers to take seniors to the doctor or the market. You have to love what the people here have done, many of them giving THOUSANDS of hours and without asking for anything in return. Just coming together at one unifying agency where clients, caring people, dollars, and skilled professionals converge. Restores your faith!

I have been volunteering for JFSSD for many years. Their range of services is so comprehensive that it is truly "one source for a lifetime of help". From a food pantry to support for victims of domestic violence, from a home delivered meal system to homebound seniors to private counseling, to a program that aids unemployed workers, to a support program for single parents, JFSSD helps so many people in both the Jewish and general community that my affiliation with this wonderful human service agency is a source of pride for me and my family. This agency is truly a San Diego gem. Nadja Kauder
