JFS Supports the Needs of Families at Every Stage of Life
Family Assistance Network
Supported by CJP, the JFS Family Assistance Network provides confidential and respectful assistance to individuals and families in Metrowest to help them meet the short-term challenges resulting from urgent financial difficulties. Our goal is to help households remain independent and financially self-sufficient.

Today’s immigrant families face many challenges, and JFS is developing innovative, integrated resources that address the social, emotional and financial needs of new Americans as they adapt to their new surroundings.
Innovative Community Programs
JFS is a nimble and responsive community-based organization that works to fill gaps in existing services and frequently pilots new and innovative programs to meet unaddressed or emerging community needs.
Programs Include: Kesher, Temple Partnerships, Bar/Bat Mitzvah Projects, Jewish Education Collaborative, LGBTQ+ Services and Information/Referral
Healthy Aging and Support for Adults aged 60+
JFS is improving safety, social engagement and access to medical care for frail older adults to maximize their health, independence and quality of life as they navigate the challenges that come with aging.
