age range of JFS clients, from infants to centenarians
The nearly 13,000 clients that walk through our doors annually are unique and 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.

STORIES OF community
Community involvement is an integral part of what we do.
We believe in the importance of collaboration to best serve our community. To provide services to all in need, we have developed strong partnerships, including over 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.
No doubt, the services I received at JFS Dallas changed my life for the better. Thank you to my case manager and counselor for everything you've done for me and my family.
