Jewish Family Service delivers essential human services to individuals and families facing challenges to their well-being. By providing information, referrals and advocacy, JFS assists people in navigating the complex safety net systems in the greater Binghamton area easing hardships, sustaining healthy relationships and supporting people in times of need. Financial assistance is provided within specific guidelines as funding permits. It is through thoughtful listening and compassionate caring that JFS can help people move from instability to a more secure and positive place.
As a small agency, JFS is unable to provide all necessary services alone to help recipients maintain their highest quality of life. JFS collaborates with the human service network in Binghamton to meet the needs of the community.
Through the generosity of the Binghamton Jewish community, JFS collects and distributes money and food on Jewish holidays throughout the year. JFS also provides support in the form of social and educational programming.
If you are interested in joining the JFS Board or assisting in any other way, please contact the Director of JFS, Rose Shea, at 607-724-2332 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
