Jewish Family Services

Jewish Family Services (JFS) is very committed to our community. Our staff is small, yet our job is big. Our mission is to provide support for the Central Valley area Jewish community regardless of age, income or synagogue affiliation; and to strengthen Jewish identity, build community, and fortify family life. We are guided by Tikkun Olam, the essential Jewish values of doing good deeds and repairing the world.

We provide the following services:

  • Information and referral support for the elderly,
  • young parents and families with special needs
  • Senior outreach
  • Friendly visitor
  • Visiting the sick
  • Food to needy families
  • Financial Assistance
  • Volunteer opportunities

All communications are kept confidential so please don’t hesitate to contact us if you could benefit from our services.

Temple Beth Israel, Congregation Beth Jacob and Chabad of Fresno have all been very supportive of JFS, and we have worked together to ensure that our community is well taken care of. A very special thanks to Whole Foods Supermarket which continues to generously donate food to JFS.

On behalf of our clients, let me say thank you for your continued support of the JFCC. Your donations have made a difference and will continue to.

If you have any questions or would like to volunteer, please call us.
