Review for Jewish Family Service of San Diego, San Diego, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We've participated in the Embrace-a-Family program at JFS for the last 3 years. It is such a wonderful way to make a HUGE difference in someone's life. The recipients of the gifts are truly, truly grateful. The thank-you letters that you receive from your families are so heartfelt and touching, it is impossible NOT to cry. My family looks forward to Embrace-a-Family every year. Our involvement has inspired other friends and family members to forgo their own gift exchanges and instead give to those most in need in their communities.

The program itself is incredibly well-managed and extremely organized. With 500+ families receiving gifts, that says a lot! It is just another reflection on how wonderful Jewish Family Service is as a whole and how efficient they are in providing 50+ programs and services throughout San Diego County. I heard that they received a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator for the 6th year in a row...and only 3% of the organizations reviewed have earned that! Wow! All the more reason to volunteer with and donate to this incredible agency.
