Accomplishments
JFCS served over 17,000 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. We helped over 200 people find work, including low income seniors, individuals who have been laid off, people on MFIP and people with disabilities.
Current Goals
Evaluate our current collaborations, decide which are bearing fruit, which need development, which need to be ended, and explore other possibilities for collaboration with organizations that provide services we do not, in order to be able to holistically work with people who are in need. Implement changes in Counseling and L'Chaim Senior Service, and evaluate all our programs in order to determine on which programs we will focus during our strategic planning process in 2013.
