Grantor Recognition

Jewish Family & Children's Service strengthens the community by offering quality and forward-thinking integrated behavioral health and social service programs to children, families, and adults of all ages and faiths in Maricopa County.

Without the support of generous foundations, companies and government agencies, JFCS would not be able to execute many of the programs and services our organization provides to those in need.
