Youth & Children’s Services offer a variety of programs to support the well being of Jewish children. Local Jewish day schools and synagogue religious schools benefit from skilled JFS counselors who work with students on social and dating relationships, self-esteem, family problems and other issues that might impact a child’s school experience.
Jewish Big Pals/Little Pals program matches children with adults for companionship and mentoring. Jewish children may receive scholarships to summer camp programs through JFS Emergency Services. JFS also offers year-round social and recreational programming for single parent families. Project DVORA (Domestic Violence Outreach, Response and Advocacy) offers Kids’ Club, a 12-week workshop on parenting children who have witnessed domestic violence, with simultaneous classes for mothers and children. JFS services for youth and children span a number of program departments. Please ask the receptionist to direct you to the appropriate program director.
