As a nonprofit health and human service agency, we transform the lives of individuals and families and strengthen our community by providing the best options in care, counseling and adoption.
JFS launched two new innovative outreach programs this year through generous funding from the Jewish Community Federation of Richmond’s Impact Grants: EnRich for Life in partnership with the Weinstein JCC and our second KiRVA program now in place at Temple Beth-El. Both programs are focused on older adult engagement and reducing isolation.
Personal Care provides the services that allow frail, at-risk seniors to remain living at home, not in a nursing home. Personal care aides assist clients with the activities of daily living--bathing, dressing, cooking and eating, and using the bathroom. Aides also provide companionship, reducing clients' feelings of isolation and enriching their quality of life.
In the short term, JFS defines success by the number of days clients lived in their own homes, not in nursing homes.
The long-term goal of Personal Care is to provide basic healthcare services to the Richmond area's poor, uninsured, medically underserved elderly that will enable them to live safely, comfortably, and independently in their own homes for as long as possible.
The long-term goal of Adoption with Love by JFS is to help couples and individuals enhance their families through adoption.
