Tell us about yourself.
My name is Wendy Kreuter, and I joined Jewish Family Services (JFS) as the Chief Executive Officer in September 2016. I have twenty years of experience in management at Schwarzschild Jewelers and served for thirteen years at The Faison Center as Vice President of Operations and Finance.
What’s the focus of your work?
JFS has been serving Richmonders for over 165 years providing exceptional guidance and support to individuals and families of all ages, faiths and income levels. We take great pride in changing lives through our care support, counseling and adoption services and we are dedicated to building a stronger, healthier and happier Richmond.
What do you find most rewarding about your work?
One of the most rewarding things about JFS is the amazing professionals working with our clients in their homes, our counseling offices and helping build new families. Everyone at JFS believes deeply in our mission of help and support.
As a new member of the JFS team, I’m looking forward to helping the community understand the services we provide. There is so much JFS can do to help individuals in their homes and beyond and it is our goal to increase this awareness.
