Community Connection


We’re all stronger when we make the right connections

Circumstances in our lives can cause us to feel separate from our community. And those feelings can lead to depression and anxiety.  But when we share our experiences and learn from each other, we can find the comfort and support we need.

GiveHelpJewish Family and Children’s Service of Greater Philadelphia  is committed to helping individuals and families engage in a variety of supportive group networks and community experiences that can help them feel a part of a larger whole.

We have an entire network of programs designed to help you develop a sense of support, friendship, and contribution.  JFCS staff understand that therapeutic services help strengthen an individual while supportive networks increase one’s sense of self-worth and belonging.

JFCS has the resources to make the introductions and bring people together. The right connection can be a powerful one and sharing experiences with a likeminded individual or group–people who understand your joys or your challenges—can be helpful beyond measure.
