This organization helps people in the community address psycho social needs ranging from unemployment, holocaust survivors to adult care issues. This organization is available to the community at large but could be viewed as a haven for people who are Jewish. Many years ago, I was a recent Master level graduate and this agency was incredibly helpful to me

Lynn Aspey at JFS is one of my most favorite people on the planet. Her energy is contagious. When the Scioto Ridge Job Networking Group was looking to conduct it's first career fair, Lynn was the first person we called. Through her experience in promoting career fairs, Lynn was instrumental in guiding through the process. The career fair was a great success. Thanks much, Lynn!

JFS is a wonderful organization and all of the Consultants that I have met put their heart and soul into helping others. They are top notch professionals and take their jobs very seriously. I would highly recommend this organization in your job search as they work very hard for each and every person they serve.

The Verizon Wireless Human Resources Team has partnered with Lynn Aspey and her team for years providing resume / interviewing tips to help displaced workers get back to work. It has been a pleasure to work with the JFS team.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

We have attended the annual Easton Job Fair which is organized by Lynn and her team and we have been able to brand our company and provide information on all the opportunities Verizon Wireless has to offer. Our goal is to give back to the community and help Ohioians get back to work.

I cannot say enough good things about the programs and staff of Jewish Family Services in Columbus, especially Lisa Carroll, Danielle Ruben, Tim McNish, Jim Hatch, and June Gutterman.

JFS's Bonei Mishpachot program is truly a lifesavers, helping individuals cope with the financial and
emotional straits; while JFS's job-search programs provide those in career transition with the tools, training, advice, and support necessary to conduct a successful job-search campaign.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

helping me organize and execute a successful job-search campaign, and coping with the emotional and financial problems associated with long-term unemployment.

increase its funding to enable the organization to provide more services to those in need in our community.

I have been so fortunate to work with Mindy Agin, a counselor in the Workforce Development Department of the Columbus JFS. Mindy and I knew each other from the community and she readily included me in her large group of opportunity- seekers. I have a varied background and Mindy coached me so that we focused on relevant skills - my resume is impressive thanks to Mindy! As a former Board member and client (!) I can say with gusto that Mindy and JFS contribute tangibly to the community of Columbus.

While at RedEnvelope, Inc., I was responsible for high volume seasonal recruiting and developing meaningful work relationships with a very diverse workforce. Shortly after my arrival at RedEnvelope, Inc., I had the good fortune of connecting with Lynn Aspey, a true dynamo at JFS. In a series of enlightening meetings, I was very confident that a partnership between our two organizations would be very fruitful in achieving not only my agreesive recruiting goals, but also, JFS could assist in providing cultural awareness and other community outreach services that my employees were in need of. Over the course of two years, Lynn and I were successful at providing over 600 seasonal associates with employment, brideged cultural gaps and even worked on the COTA Mobility Board to bring a much needed bus line to the Rickenbacher area to enable increased job accessibility to potential employees. My association with Lynn has empowered me to recommend Jewish Family Services to my peers. My experience also was such that I can proudly say that throughout my time at RedEnvelope Inc., we were proud donors of JFS. I continue to support the efforts that the organization makes under the guidance of Lynn because I believe in her mentality, connecting the non-profit world with the private sector for the benifit of those she serves.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I worked hand in hand with Lynn to adminster the programs that were aligned with my organization's needs.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I interacted most with Lynn Aspey and also Karen in the professional placement services. Karen is also a great asset to the team!

When I was laid off by my employer, I joined the SUCCESS program at JFS to get assistance in finding a new career path. I worked mostly with Mindy Agin, but also some with the other SUCCESS counselors, as they provided me with excellent guidance. Specific things that were extraordinarily helpful to me were (1) coaching on interview skills including performing mock interviews sessions, (2) preparation of a professional and powerful resume, (3) weekly seminars and discussion groups with other SUCCESS participants, and (4) loads of advice on how to pursue employers and jobs of interest. I have recommended many friends and former colleagues to take advantage of their great services. I feel absolutely confident that the fact that I was able to get a new job in a down economy had a lot to do with the help that I got from the JFS team - their advice helped me stand out from the pack and win the job offer!
