About JFCS of Greater Philadelphia

JFCS stands in solidarity with the Black community as we process the senseless deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and too many other instances of racism, violence, and hate that happen time and time again.

Together, we must build a stronger community rooted in equity and justice. There is much more work to do. And it starts at the individual level. Each of us can do more to create a community where there is more justice. And together, we can create a community that supports healing, demands meaningful and transformative action, and moves forward for a better future for all of us. And together, we will also stand in solidarity with all who oppose hate, ignorance, and divisiveness.

Our JFCS staff stands behind the values of anti-racism, justice, and inclusion and helps to support every individual that we serve in this way.  We commit our organization to systemic change where discrimination ends and equity prevails.


I’m glad that you chose to take a look at the various services and programs that we are offering to  the community in these very challenging times.

JFCS is comprised of a group of committed professionals who are passionate about helping people to live better lives.

With all of the uncertainty and worry right now, please know that we are here to serve every person in the Greater Philadelphia area that needs our help.  Contributing to our world is core to our mission.  Feel free to give us a call, send us an email, or sign up for a resource.
