From strength to strength, the Generations project continues to make progress!

As the Generations project process continues, the new Krasoff Jewish Family Service Building broke ground on June 21, 2022.

“The Shalom Austin Jewish Family Service professional staff and leadership is thrilled to be celebrating the groundbreaking of our new home on the Dell Jewish Community Campus. Over the past two years, our staff has expanded, and we no longer fit in our current space. We are eager to be fully integrated into the campus community. JFS will continue to offer services from our current office on Jollyville, as well as virtual services, to meet the growing mental health needs in the greater Austin community. Our volunteer director and food pantry will move to campus in order to more fully integrate our programs into campus life! We are eager to come home,” said Rabbi Amy B. Cohen, LMSW Chief Social Services Officer, Executive Director of Shalom Austin Jewish Family Service.
