Review for JEWISH FAMILY SERVICE INC OF BROWARD COUNTY FLORIDA, Plantation, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

JFS is an organization that I am proud to be affiliated with. I have a huge amount of respect for the professional staff who handle their clients with compassion and respect. While volunteering in so many areas, I have seen the priceless work that is being done to help our seniors, holocaust survivors, and victims of domestic abuse, etc. My involvement, financial and time spent, has definitely enhanced my life by connecting with other volunteers, the professional staff, and the clients of JFS that receive these services. Jewish family service is an agency we can all be proud of!

Review for JEWISH FAMILY SERVICE INC OF BROWARD COUNTY FLORIDA, Plantation, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

JEWISH FAMILY SERVICES OF BROWARD COUNTY IS AN AGENCY THAT DOESN'T KNOW THE MEANING OF THE WORD "NO". ITS LAYLEADERS ALONG WITH PROFESSIONALS CONTINUE TO SERVE THE NEEDY IN SPITE OF THE REDUCED ALLOCATIONS AND FUNDING. MORE PEOPLE HAVE COME TO DEPEND ON ITS SERVICES FOR FOOD, COUNSELING, AND SHELTER, BECAUSE OF OUR ECONOMY. IN ADDITION, THIS AGENCY HAS BECOME A COALITION FOR DOMESTIC ABUSE THROUGH ITS BRANCH, KOLOT. RECENTLY, OUR 4TH ANNUAL LUNCHEON, ATTENDED BY ALMOST 400, RAISED FUNDS FOR THE MANY PEOPLE WHO FACE DOMESTIC ABUSE. ANOTHER PROGRAM WHICH ALSO FACES REDUCED FUNDING IS GEARED TO THE HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS. BESIDES THE GROWING NEEDS OF CARE THEY NOW RECEIVE, JFS SPONSORS AN ANNUAL PROGRAM CALLED CAFE EUROPA WHERE SURVIVORS GATHER, MEET ONE ANOTHER, AND SHARE THEIR STORIES OF TRIUMPH WITH THE DIGNITY THEY RIGHTFULLY DESERVE. I AM PROUD TO BE A VOLUNTEER FOR THIS ORGANIZATION.

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

THAT EVERYONE SEEMS TO GAIN FROM BEING A PART OF IT... THE PROFESSIONALS, THE LAY LEADERS, AND THE CLIENTS. ITS A WIN WIN ORGANIZATION.

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

INCREDIBLE. THEY GIVE MORE THAN 100%

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

REACH OUT TO MORE HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS ON A MORE REGULAR BASIS, PROVIDE MORE SHELTER FOR DOMESTIC ABUSE VICTIMS WHO NEED A SAFE HAVEN, PROVIDE MORE FOOD PACKAGES ON A MO0RE FREQUENT BASIS TO THOSE WHO NOW NEED EVEN THE BASICS.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
