Real Hope supports all programs of Jewish Family Service (JFS), including mental health counseling, senior and adult in-home care, disability and employment services, and family safety net services.

More than 550 people attended the 19th annual JFS event at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. During the elaborate cocktail reception, guests posed for photos on the red carpet, enjoyed cocktails and decadent international food stations and passed hors d'ouevres by Epicurean. A surprise highlight during the cocktail reception by Frequent Flyer Productions included stilt walk dancers, silk rope aerialists, and an object manipulator. Read more here.

Agency Honored for Management Practices, Flexibility and Responsiveness

Jewish Family Service of Detroit is honored to be among the four finalists in the Crain's Detroit "Best Managed Non-Profit" competition for 2014.
The competition recognizes non-profit organizations that implement effective financial and programmatic management practices, while demonstrating innovation in pursuit of their missions. JFS was lauded for its Health Care Navigation program, an outgrowth of the agency's highly-successful Project Chessed, which connected more than 1,800 uninsured adults to pro bono medical services donated by local health care providers. 

On December 11th, the Jewish Family Service of Dallas Foundation held a reception thanking the individuals and families who have contributed to or established a fund with the JFS Foundation. Established in 2012, the JFS Foundation supports the long-term viability of the mental health and social services of JFS through planned giving and endowments. Now over $1.5 million in revenue, the Foundation recently granted JFS with $40,000 for mental health services. Since last September, JFS has served 500 children and 635 adults in all of our mental health services including play therapy, individual and family counseling, family violence intervention, support groups and special needs services.
