JEWISH FAMILY SERVICE OF SILICON VALLEY
August 15, 2013

JFS of Silicon Valley works every day to provide a wide range of support services and programs for those in our community. Their programs range from emergency food assistance, to ongoing senior support, support for refugees and Holocaust survivors, family and employment counseling. As a regular volunteer, JFS provides me with the opportunity to give back to my community. I know from first hand experience, that the staff and volunteers are dedicated to the work.

JEWISH FAMILY SERVICE OF SILICON VALLEY
October 19, 2009

I have volunteered with JFS SV on a number of different programs and projects, including doing ESL tutoring, volunteering at fundraiser, helping with their website, and helping with ongoing development activities. In my case, JFS was very flexible in helping to match me with volunteer work that would make use of my personal and work skills. The staff at JFS is dedicated to the work, and highly value the efforts of the volunteers.

The Great!

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

how they train new immigrants to become productive members of our society, how they provide services and necessities for those in our community who are financially disadvantaged, as well as the home-bound elderly in need of extra help and comfort.
