After serving as a Board Member of several organizations during my career, I have been very impressed with the leadership of JFS as well as the diverse nature of the Board. Their focus on managing resources to deliver on the mission of holistically helping diverse clients has yielded a high return of value to the community relative to the investments made by donors.

Further, members of my family have utilized some of the services offered by JFS. Each experience met and exceeded expectations.

I am proud to be part of this great organization.

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

JFS is a Columbus, Ohio gem. They go the extra mile with each and every individual who walks though their door (or calls on the phone). Their set of services is comprehensive and job seekers not only get the training and placement assistance they most desperately need, they also receive family and individual counseling needed during a time of crisis.

What a gem of an agency in Columbus, Ohio! They help those most in need, people who don't know where to turn when they are in a vulnerable state. Not only that, but the quality of service and personal care is what you would find from private assistance costing THOUSANDS of dollars more. The staff of Jewish Family Services is phenomenal and are expert at assisting those who lost their job, need parenting help, don't know what to do with their elderly parent, are facing domestic violence issues, need help managing their finances, are hungry, or just need someone to help them cope.
