A MESSAGE TO THE COMMUNITY

Dear Friends and Supporters, Fiscal Year 2012 was a turnaround year for JVS that featured new and improved services for the Jewish and general communities, and above all, a sustained commitment to the critical JVS mission of providing quality employment services. But there is much more to be proud of: ■■ We

have expanded the number of career counselors and added an improved capacity for job placement services. Staff surpassed the job placement goal for the year to prove the point.

■■ We

have forged working relationships with the Hebrew Theological College and the Blitstein Institute for Women to provide employment services to their graduating students.

■■ We

have developed a partnership with Jewish Child and Family Services to provide employment experiences and work readiness education to transitioning youth.

■■ We

offered acclaimed career education programs, delivering expert career information to seniors seeking to transition to today’s job market, to career changers in need of rebranding and new career identities, and to professionals and executives looking for promotion and growth.

■■ We

successfully expanded our employment services for those who are deaf and hard of hearing. In recognition of the outstanding work done

by our professional staff, increased funding from the Illinois Department of Rehabilitation Services enabled this expansion. ■■ The

Duman Entrepreneurship Center partnered with the City of Chicago to implement its Annual Small Business Plan Competition for new and existing small business owners. The Center also provided hundreds of clients with credit building services, customized business support and access to workshops, business capital, and professional mentoring.

■■ Our

Senior Aide Program provided support to Jewish communal agencies valued at more than $200,000 annually.

■■ We

will continue to expand our employment service capacity, developing outplacement services for non-profit agencies, as well as the capacity to provide our employers with management and executive level search strategies.

■■ We

are planning to launch a career testing and counseling program targeted to young adults who have graduated from college and have not yet created a practical and viable career plan.

■■ We

will establish a position of Director of Quality Assurance to achieve the highest level of service and contract compliance possible in order to meet and exceed the expectations of our clients, our funders, and ourselves.

■■ The

■■ We

The Fiscal Year 2012 successes clearly are many. The question remains, “What lies ahead?”

JVS stands proud, productive and vital in its service to the Jewish and general community as it has throughout its 128-year history. Our longevity lies with the support of our donors and funders, the dedicated service of our Board of Directors, our caring volunteers, our professional staff who provide countless hours of client services, and our community members who trust us to listen, to develop relevant programs and to deliver career changing results. To all of you we offer our deepest appreciation.

JVS brand grew both internally and externally with the launch of a new website, the addition of a wide range of social media outlets to our existing networking capabilities, and the creation of an Agency newsletter.

■■ We

are planning to launch a Cisco certification training program as a first step towards a career in the technology industry.

■■ We

anticipate that our Pharmacy Technician training program will move to Skokie in the near future, providing additional job skill training and employment to members of the Jewish community.

Elaine Saphier Fox President

are increasing our commitment to our staff’s professional development, ensuring that JVS remains at the forefront of career services, business education and innovative job coaching, programming and placement services.
