Dear Friends,                                                                          

In 2018 Jewish Family Services made a difference in the lives of hundreds of individuals and families of all faiths in Western North Carolina, and the number of people in need of our support continues to increase.

Thanks to your support, JFS is able to provide a continuum of services, including mental health counseling, case management, the Elder Club, caregiver support, a food pantry, transportation, chaplaincy services, holiday meal deliveries, emergency assistance, and other programs to empower people and strengthen our WNC communities.

 The need for our services is more critical than ever. Please consider donating to this year’s Friends of JFS Campaign, enabling us to continue to serve our community members in need and helping us to reach our goal this year of $20,000!

 Help us keep our promise to everyone who comes through our doors: Hope starts here.

 Sincerely,        

Alison B. Gilreath, MSW                                  Belinda B. Brandon, PhD

Executive Director                                                  President, Board of Directors
