Review for Jewish Family Services, Columbus, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Words can not describe the Hope, Help, Comfort and monthly ongoing support that I recieved through JFS and what this all has mean to me and my family. I had just left my husband, could not find a place to live, did not know where to turn. They held out thier arms and held up me and my children for almost 2 years. Monthly script for food, counseling, holiday events, and just a loving warmth and caring that we needed. Backpacks and school supplies when I could not afford them. They have never asked for one thing back in return. I wish I could tell everyone in this whole community about how they touch the lives of so many families in Columbus, but they just say no, keep it quite. They also do not want to embarrass anyone, or single out anyone. Hanukkah, Passover, Rosh Hashanna was special in my house thanks to JFS- I would have had nothing from time to time without them. They made us whole and we are thriving now because of all the good work they do. THANK YOU!!!

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

No cost loans, counseling, food pantry goods, clothing, holiday supplies and gifts, holiday packages, many hours of support one on one from the office staff

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way to give them thousands of dollars to let them give even more to families due to this economic situation in our country. Both Jewish and Non-Jewish families are touched by the work and giving from JFS. They are connected to where the need is in the communtiy.

Role:  Client Served & I recieved financial support, counseling, and I helped make holiday packages for the community.
