Water in the Desert!

Water in the Desert!

As I look out the window at our beautiful desert after a much needed rain,  I am reminded of our Board, donors and volunteers who supply the much needed “waters” of service and support to our economically parched low income clients.

This morning I walked by a nearby apartment building where many of our fixed income fragile clients live . It is being renovated into luxury apartments and all the tenants have been evicted. Where will they go ? What can they afford? Will they find other apartments on bus lines and near food banks? Will they be near mental health services? … senior centers? .. hospitals?
These are the concerns  of a Social Worker.

It is  so wonderful to know that, thanks to your commitment of hours and funds, they will be able to call JFS for help. We will be here….All summer.. All year.
This is the gratitude of an Executive Director.

This fall we will launch the JFS Legacy Fund Campaign to create a permanent base of support so that JFS will continue to be here for those that need us for years to come .
This is our  Dream of Tikkun Olam… Healing the World!

In the meantime, enjoy where you are, be well and know that you are deeply appreciated !

With Gratitude,


Maureen Forman, LCSW
Executive Director JFS
