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. 

One of the Jewish Social Service Agency's Hospice volunteers recently wrote a piece about her (and Leo's) experience as pet therapy volunteers. The piece was published by a local community's magazine, Inside Fallsgrove. Read the entire article here.
