JFCS served over 16,000 individuals in the previous year. We provided services that helped over 600 seniors remain in their homes and remain engaged in the community. We provided over $100,000 in Emergency Financial Assistance, primarily for rent, food, utilities and car repair, which helped people avoid homelessness, and keep their jobs (with car repair assistance), and feed their families. We served over 140 individuals with serious and persistent mental illness, helping them remain stable and out of the hospital. We worked with over 300 individuals who were experiencing anxiety, depression and family problems.
