JFS supports our veterans.
CEO Lino Covarrubias was in uniform 26 years in the U.S. Navy both in the enlisted and officer ranks.
JFS has a commitment with our partner agencies to ensure no veteran is left behind. In recent years JFS was instrumental in assisting with the funding of the elevator to MassBay Community College’s Veterans “Bunker” study facility located in the basement which was previously difficult to access for injured/disabled veterans.
