About Jewish Family Services

Founded as a Jewish Family Services Agency, supporting the needs of local Jewish families remains a key tenet of our work in the community. Services include emergency financial and food assistance, support for Holocaust survivors, counseling, mentoring Jewish children, and providing Jewish Life Education. In order to support Jewish families in need, we partner with and rely on the support of area synagogues, the Jewish Federation of Pinellas & Pasco counties, the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, and donations from individuals and foundations.
