Mission Statement

Jewish Family & Community Services East Bay (JFCS East Bay) is a community-based, direct social and human services organization that serves and supports Alameda and Contra Costa County residents of all ages, races, and religions. Guided by Jewish values and in collaboration with the diverse communities we serve, JFCS East Bay contributes to the resilience of communities, families, and individuals through advocacy and comprehensive support services at every stage of life.

Description

JFCS East Bay is one of two refugee resettlement agencies in the East Bay. We have deep expertise in resettling LGBTQ+ refugees with Refugee Services.

We pair our resettlement work with Immigration Legal Services to offer comprehensive support for self-sufficiency and family reunification.

In addition, our Children, Youth & Families team attends to the mental health needs of young children and their families.

Our Older Adults and Aging Services team ensures that older adults-and their caregivers-are supported to live with decency and respect.

While our mission has broadened to serve the whole community, based on our value of being responsible for one another, we are committed to a set of services specifically for the Jewish community.
