Dear Friends,

When Jewish Family Service of Palm Beach County, Inc. was established 50 years ago, there were very few places in our community for people to turn to in their time of need. In 1974, supports for individuals with mental health challenges, vulnerable seniors, families facing food insecurity, and people with disabilities were limited, with little coordination among agencies.

Our agency addressed these issues by establishing a more efficient and effective system of delivering care to those in need. As a multi-disciplinary agency with over two dozen programs and services, Ferd & Gladys Alpert Jewish Family Service provides resources, information, and support to over 12,500 people each year. The agency’s wraparound services and holistic approach are a beacon of hope and possibility for people facing life’s challenges.

We invite you to participate in our 50th Anniversary Campaign. Help us to celebrate 50 years of impact with your 50th Anniversary Campaign gift. Together we will ensure that our agency remains the hallmark of excellence in our community for the next 50 years and beyond.
