Because of you… children and families have food on their tables

Because of you... JFS is able to provide affordable mental health services

"We were not eating enough because we just couldn't afford food and bills."

Joan's Story

Joan lost her job due to the pandemic. Having rent to pay and children to feed created so much anxiety that her stress was overwhelming. She initially reached out to JFS for counseling, and after assessing her situation, the counselor set up weekly appointments for her.

Joan also spoke to the Safety Net Coordinator and was able to apply for rental assistance and access the Alex and Sally Lebwohl Food Pantry.

Because of you, over 8,856 people received bags of food since the start of the pandemic. The need for food assistance is far from over. We need your continued help to keep our pantry stocked.

Your gift still matters so much.
