  • They assist individuals in becoming valued, contributing and involved members of the community,
  • They provide assistance and support of the highest quality without time limit,
  • They offer a culturally rich, Jewish environment that is welcoming to people of all backgrounds,
  • They build upon the strengths of each individual and help restore a sense of hope for the present and for the future.

“JRS not only connected my son with safe and affordable housing and people who would become close friends, it also connected me with a supportive group of parents. Neither of us would be alone any longer.”
