Since 1979, newly arrived refugees, asylees, and their families have received assistance from JFS. In partnership with HIAS and JFS of Western Mass, JFS helps New Americans achieve self-sufficiency and adjust to life in their new country with the following programs:
Services include pre-migration support for U.S. Tie families, housing support upon arrival, enrollment in medical, food and cash assistance, and development of individualized resettlement plans to create a path to self-sufficiency. JFS works with refugees for 8 months after arrival.
JFS offers free assistance to anyone granted for asylum in the United States. Services include enrollment in employment and ESL services, medical, food and cash assistance (if eligible) and general case management support. Asylees are eligible for services for 8 months from asylum approval date. If you or someone you know has recently been approved for asylum, contact JFS today or call 508-875-3100 x450.
When individuals and families flee violence and instability and bring their hopes for a better future to this country, JFS is here — proudly supporting immigrants in our community and standing up for those left behind.
