How Your Gift Helps

As a nonprofit agency, JCS relies on donations to bring relief to thousands of individuals and families every year. Your donation will directly support community members who are struggling with aging, caregiving responsibilities, hunger, housing or physical or emotional challenges.

 Changing Lives for the Better

Your gift to Jewish Collaborative Services can make all the difference to someone in need of help. We see the results every day.

Appreciation is read in the smile of the grandmother who feels part of a community again in our adult day program. It’s in the happiness of an adolescent who has overcome emotional difficulties with our counseling help. It’s in the relief of older and disabled individuals receiving food or housing through one of our programs. It’s in the joy of a family with a newly adopted child.

“The people who looked after mom will always be in my heart. She loved each and every one of them…. You taught her to be herself—to live, to dance, to love, to be loved, to be cared for, and to have special friends. You taught me that it was normal to cry, to vent, to be scared, to let go and take some time for myself. I don’t think I could have done all the things I did without your help.”
