Dear Community,
Today Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” Executive Order (EO 2020-21), directing all Michiganders to stay in their homes unless they’re a part of the critical infrastructure workforce, engaged in an outdoor activity, or performing tasks necessary to the health and safety of themselves or their family, like going to the hospital or grocery store.
Jewish Family Services of Washtenaw County is considered an operation that is necessary to sustain or protect life, and will remain open with operations running remotely. We will continue to serve the community via remote care coordination, counseling, employment and crisis management, critical transport, ESL and refugee resettlement services. Our Specialty Food Pantry clients will still receive the food they rely on in a means that reduces the spread of illness.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to us for help: info@jfsannarbor.org or 734.769.0209.
We anticipate that the COVID-19 outbreak will impact our agency in many ways, including increased demand for our services, lost revenue, and decreased capacity, as well as other challenges. We are grateful for those who are volunteering during this critical time and rely on any donation you can offer.
Here are some valuable links for up-to-date information on COVID-19:

Be Well. Now and Always.
