Jewish Family Services of Delaware
Jewish Family Services of Delaware (JFS) is a health and human services agency serving families within the Delaware community for over a century, improving people’s lives and life prospects. With offices in Wilmington and Newark, JFS offers counseling, care management, youth development, and communal services to people without regard to race, ethnicity, or religion.
The agency is accredited by the Council on Accreditation and is a member of the United Way of Delaware, Jewish Federation of Delaware, and the national Association of Jewish Family and Children’s Agencies. JFS has received United Way's Community Impact Award, and has been named Lead Agency in the Delaware Aging Network, a consortium of over 50 organizations working together to serve older adults throughout the state.
JFS is especially committed to continued expansion and deepening of our contributions to the vulnerable communities of Delaware. Our vision for the agency is to use our evolving position as a key social service provider in Delaware to strengthen the support available to our most underserved populations.
JFS services are available to all people throughout Delaware and the Brandywine area. Serving the Jewish Community has historically been, and continues to be, our central focus. JFS provides services to the entire community without regard to religion, race, or socio-economic status.
The Village has been a lifeline for our family. My mom has benefited so much from the support and socialization she gets from the volunteers and her JFS Care Manager. It is wonderful to see her come alive again!
