About Us

Since 1928, Jewish Family Service has served Detroit’s Jewish community, and we’re proud to help carry that important work forward. Through the efforts of our highly skilled and dedicated staff, the hundreds of volunteers who help out in countless ways, and the leadership of our Board of Directors, JFS is able to provide compassionate, personalized services that help thousands in our community each year. Our services uniquely tailored to the specific needs of each individual or family, and center around three core areas: services for older adults, mental health and wellness, and safety net services.

Whether you’re looking for help, want to contribute as a volunteer, or are seeking to support our important mission as a donor, we’re glad you’re here, and we look forward to connecting with you.

JFS demonstrates the value of its services and meets internationally recognized organizational and program standards through accreditation by COA (Council on Accreditation), which ensures the highest standard of professional practice.
