Strengthening individuals. Strengthening families. Strengthening community. Like other nonprofit organizations in the Bay Area and across the country, JFCS felt the Great Recession this year. But instead of cutting back our services, we did something remarkable: we expanded them. The expansion was necessary because of the increase in requests for emergency family assistance: up 50% over the previous year. More people were at risk of hunger, so we increased the services of our Food Pantry in each region. More families were at the brink of foreclosure, so we helped more of them through emergency financial assistance and counseling. More people lost their jobs, so we created services for the newly unemployed to help them get back on their feet. We did all of this while broadening other vital services that our community needs to thrive and remain strong and self-sufficient. In 2008 – 2009, we also served more children, families, and elderly than ever: 65,000.

Dr. Raquel Newman, President, JFCS Board of Directors

Thanks to our community’s extraordinary generosity, JFCS did something remarkable during this recession: we expanded services to help more in need.

As we work hard over the months ahead to ensure that all who come to us receive the help they need, we remain grateful to our community, whose generosity and compassion have enabled us to do so much for so many. Please know that we shall continue to do our best to earn your confidence and trust—and to uphold our 160-year-strong tradition of humanitarian service. With warm regards, Dr. Raquel Newman, Board President Dr. Anita Friedman, Executive Director

I’ve been an active person my whole life. I’ve been retired for many years, but, until recently, still traveled, visited friends, went to the theater. When my vision began failing last year, I was devastated. How would I remain involved and get around town? My daughter encouraged me to contact Seniors•At•Home at JFCS. The volunteer who drives and accompanies me to the museum, the aide who helps me around the house, the young lady who reads to me—they are interested in my thoughts and feelings. I haven’t felt this connected in years.

1914 – 1918 World War I and the Russian Revolution trigger a new wave of Jewish immigration to the San Francisco Bay Area. The Eureka Benevolent Society helps newcomers settle and build new lives. 7

We started coming to Parents Place soon after our son was born. As an LGBT couple, we felt particularly welcome. At Parents Place, they walk the talk. We came to drop-in play group sessions with our son and attended workshops on many subjects. When our son began attending preschool, the teachers noticed he seemed unfocused, fidgety, and easily distracted. They recommended that we meet with a therapist at Parents Place’s Center for Special Needs to get a full assessment. We now know that he has attention deficit disorder, and we’re taking steps to help him thrive.

I always thought I would remain at the top of my game. Then my wife got sick, and she never got better. At 45, I was a widower with an 8- and 12-year-old. When the economic crisis hit, I learned that an MBA and 20 years in financial services didn’t make me immune. My rabbi directed me to JFCS for help with financial assistance and referrals for job counseling. But JFCS also helped me deal with the losses in my life and helped my kids deal with their mother’s death. We’re all doing better. I’m starting to feel like my old self again.

My family and I came from the Ukraine 15 years ago. JFCS found us housing, provided vocational counseling to my parents, and enrolled them in English classes. I don’t recall much from that time—I was only 2—but over the years Mom and Dad have spoken of JFCS and the help we received. I’m still involved with JFCS. This past summer, I worked at a law firm through JFCS’ intern program. I want to become an immigration attorney, and having this opportunity was phenomenal. I appreciate everything JFCS has done for us. Someday, I hope to give back to the community that has given so much to us. Thanks again, JFCS.

When I retired a few years ago, I wanted to volunteer. I thought of JFCS because my aunt received help from them several years ago. I began delivering holiday bags to people with disabilities. This led to my becoming a Senior Companion. Talk about life transforming. My client is partially paralyzed and has other troubles. But she is full of life and a joy to be around. We play Scrabble, talk politics and current events, and occasionally have dinner together. I know that volunteering is about “giving back.� But she gives back to me ten times what I give to her.

1972 We open a branch office in Marin and develop a youth outreach program on the Peninsula.
