You’ve Got a Friend in JFCS

2011 – 2012

Jewish Family and Children’s Services is one of the oldest and largest family service institutions in the United States, founded in 1850 by immigrant pioneers who arrived in California during the Gold Rush and created an extended family to care for one another.

Today, we continue to be that extended family, serving 75­­­­,000 people annually with the highest quality, research-based social and educational services designed to strengthen individuals, strengthen families, and strengthen community. As the problem-solving center for our community, we are a lifeline—cradle to rocking chair—for children, families, and older adults facing life transitions and personal crises. We are grateful to the many generous donors, businesses, and foundations that enable us to continue our humanitarian work.

We are here for you during life’s biggest challenges. Whether it’s a family facing hard times, a student who needs help to go to college, a senior who needs personal care to stay at home, or a child with autism, JFCS is here to help—always. In this past year alone, 75,000 people turned to us—the largest number in our 162 -year history! No one is left alone in his or her time of need, and no one is turned away because of inability to pay for the cost of care. How is this possible? Because our amazing community of individuals, foundations, and businesses generously support JFCS services throughout the Greater Bay Area—from Sonoma County in the north to Santa Clara County in the south. For the very young, the very old, and everyone in between— you’ve got a friend in JFCS. With gratitude to you,

Nancy Goldberg President, JFCS Board of Directors

Dr. Anita Friedman Executive Director

L’Chaim Adult Day Health Center

Extending – and Enhancing – Seniors’ Lives Rada C., San Francisco

“My late husband had two strokes—one before we left Odessa, the other here. When we started coming to L’Chaim in 2006, he was embarrassed to be around people because of his condition. Soon, though, he fell in love with the program. He used the gym again. He was a mensch again. He never missed coming to L’Chaim up until 2011, when he died. “I never miss a day here, either. The program is important to me. I have Parkinson’s disease. L’Chaim provides me with occupational and physical therapy and special exercises that I can do at home. They also check my blood pressure, blood sugar, and heart. The care is exceptional. I should know. I was a doctor in the former Soviet Union. Every person here, without exception, is very professional. “I come from an anti-Semitic culture. You weren’t treated like a human being. And being 86, you can sometimes feel that no one sees you. Here at L’Chaim, it’s the opposite. They treat you like a human being. They bring comfort. I feel alive again. “I know that economic times are tough, but I cannot lose L’Chaim. It is that important to me. There is no other program like it. One life was given to me by my parents, another by L’Chaim.”

Parents Place

Setting Families Up for Success Jenna and Colin F. with their children, Morgan, 5, and Peyton, 2, Burlingame, CA

“When we first had children, we probably read 25 parenting books. But then reality hit, and what we experienced wasn’t exactly what the books promised us parenting would be. That’s why our Parents Place parent educator has been so important to us. She has been direct, practical, and unbiased in helping us deal with the realities, and everything we’ve consulted with her on is backed up by research. It’s customized parenting advice within the framework of our own parenting philosophies. “We value education, and our Parents Place educator was great in helping us identify a school for Morgan that would be challenging and culturally enriching—not just focused on grades. She has also offered excellent guidance about setting boundaries and age-appropriate activities for Morgan and Peyton, who are both high-energy, independent, and persistent. “We were introduced to our Parents Place educator when Morgan was at Peninsula Temple Sholom Preschool, where Peyton is currently enrolled, and now we’re referring many families to her and to Parents Place. We feel that we’ve been set up for success—ours and our children’s.”

Adoption Connection

Helping Families Fulfill Their Dreams Danny K. and Ron C. with their son, Beckett, 3, Danville, CA

“Adoption Connection did a great job in preparing us to become dads. They took us through every possible adoption scenario—from the smoothest to the most challenging. The more we learned to let go and allow things to unfold naturally, the more relaxed we were. We felt totally supported. “We also learned during the adoption process how important it is to understand what the birthmother is going through, which helped us to be sensitive and thoughtful in our interactions with her. Beckett was born literally hours after we had an introductory phone call with his birthmother. It was a scary and euphoric time, but the team at Adoption Connection helped us navigate our ‘instant’ baby. “The last three years have been absolutely phenomenal. Beckett loves having two dads. Danny’s mom was always fine with his being gay, but was sad at the thought that he may not be a dad one day. (Things were different in the ‘80s!) Now, she is over the moon with Beckett, who is so even-keeled and good-natured. Everyone in our family adores him. “Adoption Connection has invited us back several times to talk about our experiences with other prospective parents, and we just told the new guys on our street who are interested in adopting about Adoption Connection.”

Emigre Services

Helping Families Start New Lives Zur N. and Amanda S., San Rafael, CA

“Amanda’s a Marin girl through and through. Her parents were married by a hippie rabbi on Mount Tamalpais,” says Zur, who is from Israel. “We met and fell in love in Costa Rica in 2006, after Amanda had finished college and I had finished my service in the Israeli Defense Forces.” “While we had a long-distance romance for several years, when we decided to get married and stay in the Bay Area, Zur had to apply for a K1 visa,” Amanda says. “After contacting several attorneys about this, we found out how expensive it would be. We would have to take a loan.” Fortunately, Amanda’s mother knew about JFCS, so the couple worked through the agency’s Emigre Services office, which was much less expensive. “JFCS was very organized and thorough,” Amanda continues. “We had no worries. They knew exactly what needed to be done. After we got married, JFCS helped Zur to get an immigrant visa so he could work at the College of Marin, where he is finishing his studies in computer science. “We’ve already talked to JFCS about starting the citizenship process for Zur. We feel so fortunate that JFCS was available to us at this stage in our lives. We couldn’t have done it without them.”

Volunteer Services

Performing Acts of Kindness Lends Perspective Debbie and Scott Kay with their children, Rachel, 9; Andrew, 8; and Elijah, 1, San Francisco

“We became involved with JFCS after we attended one of the agency’s annual events, the Fammy Awards Gala. We were inspired by the breadth and depth of services—and by how all of JFCS’ programs are wellthought-out and planned. “Volunteering at JFCS is the perfect puzzle piece for us. We observe Shabbat and celebrate the holidays; our kids go to Sunday school. But JFCS is about tzedakah and mitzvot. As Jews, giving back is important to us, and we like it that JFCS helps both Jews and non-Jews.” Scott has been on the JFCS Board of Directors for the past four years, and the couple has served as chairs (2012) and regional co-chairs (2010) of the Fammy Gala. Debbie has organized the Dream Team, a group that makes sure that the women and children at Dream House—JFCS’ residential services program for domestic violence victims—have everything they need, whether it’s diapers, vitamins, or birthday cakes. She and her children also make monthly runs to JFCS’ Food Pantry, where they fill the shelves with food. “It’s important that our children understand there are people who can’t go to the store and buy a can of soup,” says Debbie. “It puts their good fortune in perspective and teaches them to be appreciative and give back.”
