Community Improvement and Impact
JFS serves as liaison to the Senior Collaborative, working closely with community partner organizations to meet emergency needs for seniors in crisis.
Our experienced case managers can assist in exploring potential resources. They will assess clients’ eligibility for services and programs and can help facilitate the application process to obtain benefits and support. Our case managers are a resource for the Coachella Valley, providing emergency financial assistance to prevent homelessness. JFS also works with local and county organizations to advocate for the rights of seniors in the Valley. The JFS case management team takes a holistic service approach, collaborating with internal departments to ensure clients’ needs are addressed. We are dedicated to making sure that mental health issues and affordable housing stay front and center for our Valley citizens.
Kids First is a school-based counseling program offering individual counseling for at-risk children making sure that all children have access to high-quality therapy regardless of ability to pay. The goal is to reduce stress/anxiety and help to improve schoolwork, grades, and self-esteem.
