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.
Accelerating Academic & Social Equity
Poverty, high family stress, language barriers and overburdened educational systems are some of the obstacles to success faced by many students in our community. To accelerate academic and social equity for those who face these barriers, JFS is working in collaboration with the Framingham School Department, Framingham State University and MassBay Community College to address academic, social and basic needs challenges.

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.

Programs Include: Kesher, Temple Partnerships, Bar/Bat Mitzvah Projects, Jewish Education Collaborative, LGBTQ+ Services and Information/Referral
