Jewish Family Service


Jewish Family Service is the human service branch of Shalom Austin. JFS promotes well-being across the lifespan for the Austin Jewish community and community-at-large through a range of programs designed to address critical areas of need. JFS services include counseling and therapy, support for senior adults living independently, outreach to seniors in congregate living communities, emergency assistance with basic needs, support groups, support for people with disabilities, and consultation, service referral and advocacy for other social service needs. JFS exists to provide the safety net for the Jewish community and to assist people with overcoming life challenges both large and small.

JFS receives more than 90% of its annual budget from the Shalom Austin Annual Campaign allocations. To become a Friend of JFS, click here to make a secure online donation. You may also make a Tribute gift in Honor or Memory of someone.
