For over 120 years, Jewish Family Services of Delaware has answered the collective call to help repair the world —Tikkun Olam—right here in Delaware. Neighbors helping neighbors.

Your generous support over the years has helped neighbors, friends, families and refugees repair their lives, relationships and communities. Our breath and scope of work have navigated an ever-changing landscape helping Delaware’s most vulnerable live full lives with all the support they need to thrive.

When you make a gift to support the work at JFS, you are directly supporting individuals who receive our services.

Individuals like Sasha, who escaped to Delaware with her daughter from the war in Ukraine. “I never thought that I would be reliving the horrific realities that my ancestors had to endure. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the warm welcome and enormous support that we receive, making our lives more stable and comforting.”

Or this single mom of three who was working full time but unable to pay the security deposit on her new apartment. "It's been such a hard few years. I felt like giving up. JFS was always available to answer my calls. I felt supported and it felt great to be heard, always."

Or this parent, who participated in our Youth Anxiety Program with their son. “From the engaging intake to the kind and thoughtful treatment my son received each day, I can't say enough good things about how valuable his time was at JFS. He gained strategies and tools that I see him employing daily. With the SPACE training, I have been enlightened and educated on what parental best practices should be to help support my child.”

All this amazing work happens because of your generous spirit. Will you please join our on-going efforts to encounter increasingly challenging needs by making a gift to support our work?
