JFCS Update on Community Services

  • Posted On:

With the COVID-19 landscape quickly changing, JFCS is taking actions based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS).

The work we do is more important than ever. As an agency that works with vulnerable populations who are most at-risk, we are adapting our programs and reviewing alternative strategies to continue serving those who depend on our services.

JFCS is committed to continuing vital services for thousands of families in our community. Our staff is working to ensure our clients have the support they need.

JFCS healthcare centers and clinics remain open:

  • JFCS East Valley Healthcare Center
  • JFCS Glendale Healthcare Center
  • JFCS Michael R. Zent Healthcare Center
  • JFCS West Valley Clinic

Programs continuing with some adjustments to service delivery:

  • Counseling and Case Management
  • Creating Peaceful Families
  • Creative Aging
  • Helping Hands Emergency Financial Assistance
  • Hospital Chaplaincy
  • Jewish Career Services
  • Just 3 Things Food Pantry
  • Older Adult In-Home Services
  • Parent Aide, Supervised Visitation, and Family Preservation
  • Real World Job Development
  • Senior Concierge
  • Shelter Without Walls

The following programs are suspended until further notice:

  • Aleinu Outreach & Education
  • Bereavement Group Counseling
  • Center for Senior Enrichment
  • Memory Café
  • Kibbitz and Kultur


To keep our community as safe and healthy as possible, only volunteer activities with appropriate social distancing protocols are permitted until further notice. This greatly minimizes the risk to those we serve, as well as to our valuable volunteers.

Visiting JFCS

To protect the clients and patients we service, please do not visit JFCS offices or program locations if you are ill. If you are sick and need access to services, please call us to discuss alternatives.

Thank you to everyone who has reached out to us and asked how to help during this difficult time. Your generosity, kindness and compassion fuels our commitment to continue our mission of healing lives.

Please stay healthy and safe.
