For over 35 years, JFS Desert has provided important social services to the people of the Coachella Valley – regardless of religious affiliation. We offer many programs that can improve the quality of your life. You may reach out to one of our varied programs offered for seniors, get involved with a support group, or cope through a tough time with the help of one of our therapists.
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.
