Jewish Family Service offers basic emergency services to those with the most critical needs in the Jewish community, and, where possible, in the broader community. JFS caseworkers assist clients in assessing their situations and creating action plans that meet their immediate critical needs, with long-term stabilization as the goal. To that end, we provide the following:
- Alternatives to Addiction
This program provides confidential, supportive assistance to those struggling with addiction.

- Financial Assistance
Funds may be available to help pay for various emergencies such as transportation, medical needs, past due utility bills, avoiding eviction or school clothing. Screening is required.
