Who We Are

For 156 years, Jewish Family Services (JFS) has provided critical support services to thousands of individuals, families and children in the greater Milwaukee area.

We offer quality community based programs that improve the health, personal well-being and levels of independence of persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities, physical disabilities, age related disabilities, chronic mental health issues and families with low household incomes.

JFS’ services are not exclusive to the Jewish community; individuals representing all religions, races, and ethnicities, are eligible to participate in our programs.

Our geographic service areas include Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Waukesha, and Washington counties with the vast majority of individuals residing in the city of Milwaukee.
