Our Mission: Strengthen the individual, enhance the family, protect the vulnerable, with human services based on Jewish values.
At Jewish Family Service, we are One Source for a Lifetime of Help. When a family needs help following a disaster, when a teenage mother needs parenting skills, when a family yearns to adopt a child, when a single parent can no longer make ends meet—we make a difference in people’s lives.
With more than 50 programs and services, we’re dedicated to serving our entire community. You can see it in our past, you can feel it in our present, and you can count on it in our future.
Jewish Family Service was founded in 1918 by a consortium of women’s clubs who sought to address the myriad of human needs of the time. Today, we have grown into one of San Diego’s premier human care service organizations serving more than 35,000 people annually with twelve locations throughout San Diego County and three in the Coachella Valley.
