Jewish Family Services of Greenwich held their Summer Celebration at Greenwich Reform Synagogue on June 28, celebrating the organization’s 40th Anniversary serving Greenwich and Fairfield County.
The event honored Joan Mann, former JFS of Greenwich board member and weekly Bikur Cholim program volunteer (visiting the sick at Greenwich Hospital), who has lent her time and talent to JFS for 40 years and was an original board member.
Jen Donnalley and the Greenwich Country Day School Center for Public Good were also honored as exceptional community partners and steadfast supporters of our Refugee Resettlement efforts.
The event featured a gourmet vegetarian pizza truck and refreshments. The event raised over $65,000 in support all of JFS programming, including Resettlement and Immigration Services, Supermarketing for Seniors, Family Support Services, Jewish Health & Healing, and their Behavioral Health Center.
Jewish Family Services of Greenwich is a non-profit social services agency serving the greater Greenwich community. We provide mental health therapy, Jewish-themed programming, senior assistance, and immigration counseling. JFS of Greenwich is a refugee resettlement agency through HIAS (Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society) and actively partners with local social services agencies to help families with economic challenges.
JFS has helped settle 700 resettlement clients in just over one year, and each month the numbers grow. Their counseling services accept most insurance plans. All other services rely on donations from individuals, businesses, foundations, and government grants.
