Jewish Family and Children Services

An agency of the Jewish Federation is its Jewish Family and Children Services (JFCS), which offers a diverse array of services to help children, adults, seniors, and families cope with challenges that arise throughout the lifecycle. JFCS' staff of caring and dedicated fully licensed clinical social workers are committed to providing quality services, compassionate support, and solutions that work.

The Jewish Family and Children Services offers the following programs on an annual basis:

● care for more than 40 Holocaust Survivors who are residents in Ocean County, including providing them with Kosher Meals-on-Wheels, home health care, and transportation to and from doctor's appointments, grocery shopping and other activities of daily living.
● senior socialization groups twice weekly, which provide home-bound and isolated seniors with the opportunity to venture away from their homes, gather with others and enjoy interesting, entertaining and useful programs, along with meals and refreshments
● regular support groups for caregivers and those who have lost loved ones
