In 1854, Jewish Family Service of Los Angeles (JFS) was the first charity to be established in Los Angeles. Today, more than 150 years later, they are proud to offer “a family of services” to nearly 100,000 individuals every year.
Through their programs and services, they strive to meet the trials of poverty, hunger, domestic violence, homelessness, substance abuse, families in crisis, disabilities, and aging with dignity. This compassion grows out of deep roots in Jewish values—“tikkun olam,” or healing
the world, is a central tenet of Judaism.
JFS welcomes and serves people of all ages, ethnicities, and religions. Our professional staff and dedicated volunteers share a passionate commitment to enriching and improving the lives of every member of our community.
