The Mission of JFS Desert is to provide for the social service needs of the Jewish and general community throughout the greater Coachella Valley with a commitment to promote the well-being of people of all ages, incomes and lifestyles.
Since its inception as part of the Jewish Federation of Palm Springs and Desert Area in 1982, JFS has grown—not just in size, but in its ability to serve the people of the Coachella Valley. Beginning as a small group of volunteers who checked in on seniors and disabled people who lived alone, JFS Desert has evolved into an organization of professionals and volunteers that provide a broad range of support and services to thousands of Southern California residents each year.
JFS is a non-denominational agency, founded on the Jewish Principle of Healing the World, wherever in the world you may be. We are passionate about our Valley! JFS has served the social service needs of the Coachella Valley for over 37 years and now provides over 10,000 face to face services a year in mental health services , school counseling, senior assistance, camperships and special programming for the Jewish community .
