Spokane Area Jewish Family Services

  • 3 people are interested

Spokane Area Jewish Family Services is a small, community-supported nonprofit focusing on human services for seniors and low-income and/or disabled individuals of any age. We serve clients of all backgrounds and ages, and we are not religiously affiliated. The "Jewish" in our name refers to Jewish values, such as helping those who are suffering to become more self-reliant and forge a better future for themselves, and helping to repair a world in which too much is broken.

SAJFS has been fortunate to receive a few small grants in the last couple of years, and this new way to fund our work promises to make us more sustainable in the longer term. We are currently seeking 1-2 volunteers who want to focus on finding and applying for grants on behalf of SAJFS. We will train you, with help from a board member who has considerable nonprofit and grantwriting experience, and the agency's director will oversee your work. While in-office work may be necessary at times, some research and grant application work can be done remotely.

If you are interested in learning more about grantwriting while helping a plucky local nonprofit serve seniors, low-income families, and individuals with disabilities in the Inland Northwest, please get in touch!

Mission Statement

Spokane Area Jewish Family Services works to meet social service needs of our community by offering family oriented programs and services that incorporate Jewish values, ethics, culture, and the tradition of helping people help themselves. We envision an Inland Northwest where every family has a strong support system, where each senior thrives and is surrounded by friends, and where people who struggle have access to social services.

Description

Jewish Family Services organizations throughout the United States work to meet the social service demands of those in need. Jewish Family Services (JFS) is an organization that can be found in many communities with an established Jewish population. In the pursuit of tikun olam (fixing the world), many JFS organizations focus on assisting the aging, families, and children. While each local office is an independent nonprofit organization, all share a similar philosophy: to help those in need.
