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, serving 76,000 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.

Dear Friends, We know first-hand that all of us face times in our lives when things fall apart. Whether it is helping young people go to college, seniors to lead happier and healthier lives, or families to successfully raise their children, JFCS is here in times of need—always—as we have been for 163 years. Our expert professional staff continues to serve all who turn to us for assistance, and no one is turned away because of inability to pay for the cost of care. How is this possible? Thanks to our amazing community, contributions have increased to meet the urgent need. Individuals, foundations, and businesses have come together to make this a historic year. Government has cut safety services dramatically, but generous support from across the Greater Bay Area—from Sonoma County in the north, to Santa Clara County in the south—has made it possible to serve more people than ever in our history. 76,000 men, women and children were helped to find health, independence, and success in their lives. With much appreciation, our work in partnership with you gives meaning to the word “community.” Sincerely,

Susan Kolb President, JFCS Board of Directors

Dr. Anita Friedman Executive Director

frail seniors get urgently

When Esther’s husband, Ralph, was in the end stages of a terminal illness last year, the home care professionals from Seniors At Home’s were a godsend. “I don’t know what I would have done without them,” says 85-year-old Esther. “They took care of him as a patient, and they took care of me as I was grieving.” When Ralph died, JFCS and Seniors At Home provided her with spiritual counseling to manage her loss and continue to play a huge role in her life. A volunteer from JFCS’ Canine Corps visits each week with her dog to brighten Esther’s life. Other volunteers help with shopping and drive her to doctors’ appointments. In addition to receiving Home Care services, Esther participates in JFCS’ food program, which delivers nutritious meals to her. “You have all been wonderful and caring,” says Esther. “Thank you.”

28,000 Managing three high-energy little boys is a challenge for any parent. But when Anne’s eldest began acting out at preschool and having numerous tantrums at home, and one of her twins was not responding to typical social cues, the need for help became more critical. “There were days when I just wanted to hide under the table,” she says. “I felt so alone.” That was almost five years ago. Since then, Anne and the boys, Sam, Leo, and Jack, have been doing much better— thanks to the experts at Parents Place. Counseling and coaching sessions with Parents Place’s educators have provided Anne with effective parenting strategies and emotional support. The boys also are responding well to the clinical assistance they are receiving from Parents Place’s psychologists and social workers. Today, Anne has a renewed sense of hope about her and her children’s lives. “I trust the people at Parents Place implicitly,” she says. “They understand me. They are nonjudgmental and welcoming. They know what you’re going through and just how to help.”

For most of her life, Rebecca, 49, has coped with challenging health issues: type 1 diabetes, celiac disease, and multiple sclerosis, which has resulted in significant cognitive deficits. She lives on a fixed disability income in an assisted living facility. Upbeat and resilient, Rebecca has retained her strength thanks in large measure to JFCS’ Disabilities Program, which has given her practical and emotional support for more than five years. Her JFCS social worker helps her navigate the health care system, often accompanying her on doctors’ visits, advocating on her behalf, and helping her locate other useful resources. Rebecca also receives weekly visits from a JFCS volunteer, who buoys her spirits, and she loves connecting to Jewish traditions through JFCS’ holiday outreach program, including deliveries of traditional foods as well as gatherings at Hanukkah and Passover. “JFCS is an extension of my family and my safety net,” says Rebecca. “When things happen, I know I can count on JFCS.”

The son of immigrants from China, Eric was in high school when he was accepted into the JFCS Manovill Holocaust History Fellowship. As a fellow, Eric conducted college-level research about the Holocaust and patterns of genocide and gained skills as an advocate for strengthening tolerance in the Bay Area. “I taught my peers about patterns between the Rwandan Genocide and the Holocaust and wrote my thesis on the motivations of perpetrators,” says Eric. “Last summer, I was given the extraordinary opportunity to study this shameful piece of history by traveling to Germany, Poland, and Israel with JFCS’ Legacy Study Tour.” Eric also created a short film with the oral history of one local survivor, Jerry Rosenstein. Eric and Jerry met for the first time in June at a special tribute event that honored over 100 Bay Area survivors for their efforts to teach future generations. “Studying the Holocaust is more than examining a moment in history, “ says Eric, now a freshman at Yale. “It’s about understanding humanity in all its complexities.”
