Samost Jewish Family & Children's Service (JFCS) of Southern New Jersey is dedicated to helping people successfully meet the challenges of daily life. We are a nonprofit human services agency that provides quality, affordable, and accessible social services to Jewish individuals and families in need. JFCS is also responsive to the needs of the broader community on a non-discriminatory basis. We place the highest value upon treating people with dignity and respect and are guided by the Jewish tradition of helping people help themselves.
Samost Jewish Family & Children's Service is our community's premier social service agency. JFCS sets the standard of excellence in care and programming and delivers both with an unparalleled level of compassion and respect, restoring hope and dignity.
How are we doing? JFCS recently conducted its Annual Counseling Survey that was sent out to over 400 clients currently receiving services. The results show that 92% of respondents say they are receiving all the services they expected, 91% said if they needed help again they would call JFCS immediately, and 90% said they would refer someone they knew who needed help to JFCS. The survey response rate was more than 25%, compared to an average response rate of less than 10%.
