Strengthening Individuals, Families, and Communities through Counseling, Care Management, and Education
Jewish Family Service supports people of all denominations and generations throughout Salt Lake, Summit, and Wasatch Counties.
JFS provides Mental Health Counseling through a collaborative partnership with The People's Clinic in Park City. Last year, JFS provided 1,326 hours of counseling to individuals, couples, and families. (View video above)
In addition, JFS is the rare "one stop shop" people in financial crisis can turn to. Through our Safety Net Program, JFS offers a breadth of necessities: emergency assistance funds, food pantry, as well as transportation, grocery, and thrift store vouchers to eligible individuals and families. Last year, JFS disbursed over $13,000 in emergency assistance, and an estimated 800 pounds of food to assist families who have fallen on hard times.
JFS is the first certified provider of the Music & Memory Program in Utah. It provides personalized playlists through digital music technology to people with Alzheimer's. This innovative tool engages the mind and enables individuals to reconnect with the world and those around them through music-triggered memories, as featured in the Sundance-award-winning documentary, "Alive Inside."
JFS also hosts the weekly Park City Career Network, offering networking, job skills, and emotional support to those impacted by the recession and seeking professional employment. Last year, 100 job seekers attended these sessions, over half of whom have found employment or successfully started their own business.
