Jewish Family and Children's Services

Jewish Family and Children’s Service is a non-profit, non-sectarian 501(c) (3) organization dedicated to strengthening the community through quality behavioral health social services, and primary medical care to children, families and adults. Our approach to care is based on traditional Jewish values, but that does not mean we only serve Jewish families. We provide quality services to people of all faiths that helps strengthen families, resolve conflicts and cope with everyday living.

"Although social needs have changed over the decades, the central mission of JFCS has always been to help others. The time-honored Jewish values... infuse the agency with energy, integrity, and a devotion to helping others in need." -- Michael R. Zent, Ph.D., President and CEO (2008 - 2016)
