age range of JFS clients, from infants to centenarians
Clients that walk through our doors represent individuals and families of all ages, religions, race, and socio-economic status. If you step into our waiting room on any given day, you might see a child who has just finished their day at the local elementary school, a grandmother filling out paperwork to receive kosher home-delivered meals, and a man waiting for an appointment with one of our bilingual career coaches to update his resume and begin a job search.
The breadth and depth of what we provide at JFS is unrivaled. Where else can you find a nonprofit that offers therapeutic yoga as part of their cancer support services, employment resources for veterans, play therapy and diagnostic testing for children with special needs, and services for Holocaust survivors all under one roof? Many clients utilize multiple services because few challenges exist in isolation.
Food Pantry Clients reported eating at least 2 meals per day which prevented hunger.
Older Adult Services clients remained independent and living in their own homes.
Adult Mental Health Services clients achieved two out of three treatment goals.
Child Mental Health Services clients showed improvement after treatment.
Family Violence clients created a safety plan toward greater physical & psychological safety.
Career & Employment Services clients were able to secure a job within six months.
We have strong partnerships with more than 40 collaborations throughout the community. Five of those are represented in these photos: The Jewish Federation of Greater Dallas, Jubilee Park Community Center, the North Texas Food Bank, United Way of Metropolitan Dallas, and the City of Plano.
I’ve been in and out of counseling for almost 14 years. When I started seeing my trauma counselor at Jewish Family Service, I felt a monumental shift in my mental health. They encouraged me to stay committed to my medication and my weekly therapy sessions to overcome years of abuse. My counselor is not simply helping me; they are genuinely healing me.
In more ways than one, JFS has been a lifeline when I needed it most.
