The mission of Jewish Family Service is to strengthen Jewish individual and family life through counseling, education and social services.
Jewish Family Service is a non-profit human service agency for people of all ages and all walks of life. Our goal is to provide light, hope and help to individuals struggling with life challenges. JFS’s professional, highly credentialed staff offers mental health and support counseling for individuals and families including a specialized program for individuals who live with persistent and pervasive mental illness. JFS also provides disability services, senior adult services and case management, employment services, Jewish chaplaincy services at area hospitals, community outreach, financial assistance programs and volunteer opportunities.
From its founding in 1913, Jewish Family Service has provided assistance and professional resources to members of Houston’s Jewish community. Through the years, as our community’s needs have grown, so have our programs and staff. With a focus on strengthening family life, laying the foundation for self-sufficiency and improving both the social and economic conditions of our clients we serve Houston’s Jewish community as well as the larger community.
All fees are affordable and based on a flexible fee scale which takes into account the client’s ability to pay. No client is ever refused quality care due to an inability to pay. Many services are covered by Medicare or private health insurance plans.
