Your donation has a real impact at JFS. When an older adult needs quality medical care, a family seeks compassionate counseling, or a couple longs to adopt a child, it is your dollars that make it possible.

JFS was founded on the Jewish concept of Tikkun Olam, which means to repair the world through acts of kindness and dedicated service, one person at a time. This guiding principle is at the heart of everything we do. It reminds us that our community is only as strong as we work to make it.

With over half of our clients coming from low-income households, your gift provides critical care to individuals who otherwise could not afford it. You can transform the lives individuals and families right here in Richmond.

To make a gift to JFS or discuss how you can make an impact, call Chief Impact Officer Becki Mann at (804) 349-0778, Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
