JFS of Metrowest is pleased to announce our return to being at full affiliate status with HIAS. Drawing on Jewish values and history, HIAS provides vital services to refugees and asylum seekers around the world and advocates for their fundamental rights so they can rebuild their lives. HIAS partners directly with the federal government to resettle refugees in the United States through their network of affiliate agencies across the country who welcome and support refugee families in their communities.
Lucia Panichella, Senior Director of Programs and Partnerships remarks “As a HIAS affiliate, JFS is able to fully live our values of social justice and social responsibility and accelerate social, academic and health equity in our community. We are excited and grateful to continue this work with HIAS.”
