We are Grateful for Friends Like You

In today’s social media world, what it means to be a “friend” has morphed into a vague and sometimes meaningless title. But at Jewish Family Services, our view of a friend has not waivered beyond the dictionary’s age-old definition: a person who helps or supports someone or something. It’s friends like you who help JFS be a friend to thousands of people throughout greater Milwaukee. Click here to read more…

Save the Date for Giving Tuesday!

We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday on December 1, a global day dedicated to giving back! This year, if you make your end-of-year donation on or before Tuesday, December 1, 2015, it will have TWICE the impact for individuals and families in our community who cannot afford housing, counseling and care management services. Because of a grant we’ve received, your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $5,000. However you choose to support JFS clients (by mail, hand delivery or online) from now until #GivingTuesday, your $18 becomes $36, $100 becomes $200, $500 becomes $1000, and $5,000 becomes $10,000! Donate now!
