In 2012, Jewish Family Service launched an awareness campaign based on three little words: WE GIVE A... WE GIVE A‌ We most certainly do! WE GIVE A... hand up (not a hand out) to over 4,700 lives annually. Quite a feat for the 43 members of our team who comprise the “WEâ€? in WE GIVE A‌ WE are a dedicated, experienced professional staff who tirelessly work with our neighbors at all hours of the day if needed. WE GIVE A... guiding hand, a thought-out plan of action, a solution in an emergency, and sometimes just a warm smile at the right moment to strengthen lives of all ages from babies to bubbies. And just what is it that WE GIVE? According to the vision of Jewish Family Service, WE GIVE A‌ light “to lead the way to a Jewish community where everyone lives with dignity, security and hope.â€? We seek to fulďŹ ll this vision by providing services in four core areas: Aging and Caregiver Services, Adoption, Family Life Education and Youth Services, and Vital Services for the most vulnerable in our community. Through Aging and Caregiver Services, WE GIVE A... senior adult dignity and promote independence. Our professional staff provide guidance in a myriad of ways to older people and the people who care for them so that they may lead lives of optimal choice. Living independently wherever an older adult calls home is the basis for our work in this area. Whether through county-funded or state-funded contracts, or through our premier private

fee Geriatric Care Management Practice, Jewish Family Service Aging and Caregiver Services staff are Your Experts in AgingTM who served more than 850 people with information and on-going 1:1 guidance. Through Adoption and Family Life Education, WE GIVE A... child security. In 2012, our Adoption Connection social workers gave 21 infants and children a loving and secure home by bringing together birth parents and adoptive families. Our caring social workers often sacriďŹ ce their holidays or sleep to meet birth mothers at the hospital or calm their concerns over the phone. And the work does not stop at the placement. WE GIVE A... supportive and caring ear to birth parents and all members of adoptive families for as long as they need. This past year we welcomed to our birth parent support group a woman who made an adoptive placement over 40 years ago! Through Family Life Education, WE GIVE A... more secure future to nearly 2,500 community members who participate in our varied programming. The experienced social workers with our Bigs & Littles youth mentoring program stay in close contact with the Bigs, plan monthly outings for the Bigs/Littles matches, and also connect to the Little’s school and family to give that vulnerable child the best odds of having a secure life and future. Our effective educators, who provide Healthy Relationship trainings in school and antibullying trainings at camps, help students recognize and prevent abusive behaviors so kids can feel secure at home, with friends, and while dating. And our leadership in the PJ Library program extends the reach of our parenting and educational programming to the many households in our community with young children, which encourages kids to feel secure with their family’s values.

zip codes, and is convenient for accessing other community services our clients use.

Through Vital Services, WE GIVE A... family hope. When our case managers and social workers look into the eyes of a father who lost his job and can’t pay the heating bill, or hear the worries of a client with mental illness who is stuck in the government’s red tape and can’t get available aid, WE GIVE A... ray of hope for a brighter future. The year 2012 brought the exciting announcement that our Vital Services department will move all of its services under one roof on the Clifton campus of HUC (Hebrew Union College). The new Jewish Family Service Barbash Family Vital Support Center will house the food pantry, case management, supportive counseling, nutrition classes, and socialization activities in a central location that is easily accessible to our Vital Services clients who live in over 45 Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky

We look forward to introducing you to the many new volunteer opportunities that will be available so that together WE can guide more struggling families along the road toward self-sufďŹ ciency. Three small but powerful words - WE GIVE A... deďŹ nes the gift that Jewish Family Service gave to 4,707 individual people in 2012. One person at a time and all together, WE GIVE A... community strength. Respectfully,

2012 volunteers...

Thank you to the following volunteers who help sustain our work in the community by supplementing our staff and limited resources. In 2012, over 400 volunteers stocked food pantry shelves, delivered food to families in need, tutored Russianspeaking adults in English, visited isolated older adults, served on committees, mentored children, assisted Holocaust survivors, provided clerical support, and so much more. We appreciate your dedication, time and enthusiasm.
