JEWISH FAMILY SERVICE INC OF BROWARD COUNTY FLORIDA
October 29, 2009
JFS of Broward is an extraordinary Jewish non-profit. I chair the KOLOT (Voices) coalition at JFS where volunteers and staff work together to provide aid to Jewish victims of domestic abuse. JFS has helped countless families this year weather the economic storm working overtime to provide food and financial assistance to those in the community with dire needs. JFS took budget cuts, but didn't let services wane. Just this week, I and 20 other voluteers held produced our 4th annual luncheon, educated 380 attendees about abuse and raised money for JFS... and exciting and exhausting experiece!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the knowledge that I can help make a difference in the lives of others in need.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
helpful, kind and supportive.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
provide housing for victims of domestic violence, and young adults with developmental disabilities.
