Supporting the Mission of JFS

Your contribution has the potential to transform the lives of neighbors who are faced with a myriad of challenges such as poverty, disability, aging, failing health, unemployment, immigration and acculturation.

Whether you were born in another country or right here in Michigan, raised in comfort or in poverty, rescued from a war-torn country or from the despair of depression, you are equally welcomed and served by JFS. Through its dedicated staff and volunteers, and in cooperation with a wide range of community partners, we strive to be the catalyst for meeting the human services needs of all people in Washtenaw County.

Need in our community continues to grow. Children need to be fed, bills need to be paid in a timely manner, and rent has to be
covered. More meals need to be served, more rides provided, more people accompanied to doctor visits, more families resettled, more women trained to start businesses, and more families counseled.

Our dedicated and devoted staff works hard every day to make our community a better place, one individual or family at a time. On behalf of the board of directors, staff, volunteers, and clients that we serve, we genuinely thank you.
