Carve Your Support in Stone

You are invited to carve your support for Jewish Family Services in stone, honoring our 150th anniversary of providing hope, help, and healing in our community.

Whether you choose to mark a special life occasion, honor the memory of a loved one, or simply show your support of JFS with your or your family’s name, your gift will support a special 150th anniversary campaign that is bringing a vibrant new community green space to life at our Bradley Crossing Supportive Housing Community in Brown Deer.   Purchase Here!

Because we recognize that communal spaces foster connections and bring people together, our 150th Anniversary Campaign included a capital project to enhance our residents’ outdoor space, which is ideally located at the center of the five residential buildings that comprise Bradley Crossing and the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Residences at Bradley Crossing. This dynamic, multi-use space greatly increases the neighborhood connections within our well-integrated and multi-generational residential community. Thank you for your support to make it possible.

Mental Health Clinic and Counseling Services: Accepting new clients!

Our clinic is staffed by psychotherapists, a psychologist and a consulting psychiatrist who are prepared to meet the needs of those with mental illness, depression, anxiety and other personal problems.

Free Dental Services for Holocaust Survivors:

The Alpha Omega-Henry Schein Cares Holocaust Survivors Oral Health Program is accepting applications for free dental work to Holocaust survivors in the greater Milwaukee area. Since 2015, the program has provided hundreds of Holocaust survivors across the United States with free oral care. Applicants must be recognized by Claims Conference as being a Holocaust survivor and meet certain financial and eligibility requirements. Priority is given to eligible persons based on the need to eliminate painful oral conditions, restoration of function and lack of dental insurance coverage. For more information, contact Jewish Family Services’ Holocaust Services Department at 414-390-5800.
