Welcome

Create solutions.
Promote dignity.
Inspire humanity.

Serving our community since 1993, Jewish Family Services of Washtenaw County is dedicated to strengthening family life, fostering individual self-sufficiency and promoting improved social and economic conditions.

AGENCY MISSION

As an agency in Washtenaw County that serves a diverse, international population, the mission of JFS is to create solutions, promote dignity and inspire humanity.

VISION STATEMENT

Jewish Family Services endeavors to be a trusted and stable source of professional, compassionate and affordable services delivered in a spirit of Jewish values and tradition. Through dedicated staff and volunteers, and in cooperation with a wide range of community partners, JFS strives to be a catalyst to meet the human service needs of all people of Washtenaw County.

ELIGIBILITY FOR SERVICE

Jewish Family Services provides services for all residents of Washtenaw County. We are committed to providing affordable, accessible, holistically-oriented and culturally sensitive care to our clients, whatever their identification, affiliation, lifestyle, background, race, religious creed, or national origin.

Be Advised

We have been receiving various reports of increased number of panhandlers in not only Washtenaw county but other surrounding areas. While some of these individuals may report they are refugees, they have not been resettled by our agency or by our partner agencies in the region. “Refugee” is a term that is used frequently to mean anyone fleeing a country, but might not be someone who was actually given that status by the State Department.

However, regardless of their status, we have made numerous attempts to engage with these individuals and they have refused our outreach and services. We are very concerned for the safety of the women and children involved in these activities. If you encounter this person, or anyone, who is interested in finding community services, they can call our main number 734-769-0209, reach out to United Way at 211, or call local law enforcement.
