100 Names for 100 Years
Since 1913

100 Names will
create the safety net and other vital
resources for future generations
of Jewish individuals and families
in the greater Houston area who
face emotional, financial, cognitive
and physical challenges, whether
ongoing or in an emergency.

In the last 100 years, families
created legacy gifts that are being
used for clients today by Jewish
Family Service. The creation of your
legacy will provide the foundation
for our Jewish community's next
century of safety net services.

Let's Talk...

about people who need counseling, those among us with disabilities, the unemployed, patients in the hospital, families who need emergency assistance, individuals in crises, seniors who deserve dignity and want independence, caring volunteers, and members of our community who don't even have the most basic of needs.

A discussion with the leadership of 100 Names can help determine the area of needs that matter the most to you. A bequest to Houston Jewish Family Foundation in your will is perhaps the easiest way to ensure the continuity of your charitable giving.
