Jewish Family and Children’s Services OF SAN FR A NCISCO, THE PEN I NSU L A , M A R I N A N D SON O M A COU N T I ES
ANNUAL REPORT 2013-14
is for JFCS
Strengthening individuals. Strengthening families. Strengthening community. 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. JFCS serves 78,000 people annually with the highest quality, research-based social and educational services designed to strengthen individuals, strengthen families, and strengthen community.
FROM THE PRESIDENT AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
Dear Friends, JFCS is for everyone. We help people solve the personal problems in their lives. We help parents find expert solutions, and we help all children blossom. For seniors, we make it possible for them to live out their lives in their own homes with dignity. There are no people without problems, and so we support adults to face—and surmount—life’s inevitable challenges. And we help young people find their way, and grow up to be successful adults. We deliver food to the homebound, transport elders to their doctor appointments, visit the lonely, protect the abused, and heal the bereaved. We do all this and much more, because of you—and many caring people like you. Our humanitarian work is an expression of your values and your generosity. Even with decreasing government funding and increasing caseloads, JFCS is here for everyone. We are honored by your trust and devoted to your service as we enter our 165th year. With gratitude and warm regards,
Susan Kolb President, JFCS Board of Directors

Captain Bill, a former United States Navy officer, Vietnam War veteran, and U.S. Merchant Marine captain, came to JFCS for bereavement care after losing his father and partner within months of each other. But, walking to a JFCS support group one evening, he was hit by a car. Severely injured, he saw his life spiraling out of control. “I was adrift,” he says, “bobbing around like flotsam and jetsam.” That was until JFCS’ Seniors At Home intervened. A case manager now oversees Captain Bill’s care. The 72-year-old also benefits from fiduciary services, meal delivery, and a volunteer companion. “I will be eternally grateful for the services I’ve received,” Captain Bill says. “They’ve done an immeasurable amount of good. Slowly but surely, I’m putting my life in order.”

Ben and his parents were excited when he started kindergarten. But their enthusiasm was short-lived. “Only weeks after starting, Ben’s teacher reported problems,” recalls Shauna, his mother. “She said that he couldn’t sit up at circle time, he was constantly chewing on his shirt, and he covered his ears and made loud noises during music time. In preschool, he was described as a free spirit; but with a more structured routine, things started falling apart.” Experts at Parents Place promptly addressed Ben’s problems—an occupational therapy evaluation assessed his sensory processing abilities. Ben started weekly therapy and his negative behaviors have been transformed. “Ben is now in the third grade and loves it,” says Shauna. “And we love Parents Place for being smart, kind, and on the ball.”

Following a terrible accident that left her paralyzed, Gillian wept for her mother who she wanted by her side. “I wasn’t thinking straight,” she says. “My mum died years ago in Johannesburg, where I grew up. The people at JFCS became my family.” JFCS’ caring touch included counseling to help Gillian come to terms with the trauma she’d experienced. She also received home care services until she could manage independently. “I grew up in a close-knit community in Joburg, and my parents were contributors to all of the Jewish institutions there,” say Gillian. “I never realized, until I needed the services myself, just how important it is to support them. By getting through this tragedy, I have not only regained my life, but I have also gained a community.”

As the University Fellows at JFCS Holocaust Center this past year, Sarah Lewington and Andrea Struve delved deeply into the study of the Holocaust and other forms of genocide. Both aspiring educators, Sarah, a senior at San Francisco State University, and Andrea, a master’s degree candidate in education at the University of San Francisco, gained invaluable professional experience developing curriculum and working with high school students to advance their understanding of the Holocaust. Their work has inspired JFCS friends to provide new funding. Thanks to the Maria and Jerry Brenholz University Fellowship and the Albert Jerassy University Fellowship Fund, the University Fellowship Program will expand during the 2014 – 2015 academic year.
