We can help!
“(The JFS Social Worker) was really there for me and my family at a critical time, by setting up a lifeline for my elderly parents, finding drivers so my disabled brother and father could make it to see their doctors, and finding people to help them unpack. (It was) above and beyond what I expected. This is such a needed program for the community. (JFS) continues to be a source of support for us by providing me with accurate and up-to-date information about caregiver support programs and services available within this area. Without this help my parents might have ended up suffering in a nursing facility rather than staying in the comfort of their own home.”
