Jewish Child and Family Service  Annual Report 2010-2011
Message from Our Executive Director
This year’s Annual Report highlights the way in which Jewish Child and Family Service,
with your support and involvement, was able to respond in the past months to the many
challenges faced by individuals and families living amongst us. In accordance with our
underlying belief that each of us must take care of one another, we continue to respond to
communal and individual needs and to offer a diverse range of programs and services
designed to strengthen the lives of everyone in our community.
This report’s Services Area Summary will provide you with an accurate picture of the
breadth and depth of what we accomplished this year. As you will note, our challenges
were varied and plentiful and required us to continually adapt to a changing environment.
We learned, as we have in the past, that one of the byproducts of delving into and dealing
well with social service needs is the ongoing discovery of additional needs.
Our increased focus on aging seniors with psychiatric disorders, for example, resulted in increased caseloads and the
realization that the ‘boomer’ generation will invariably produce a greater number of people to be serviced. Similarly, our
promotion of suicide prevention services and of addiction services revealed to us that, so far, we are dealing only with the tip
of an iceberg.
The ongoing flow of new immigrants to Winnipeg also has proved a challenge to us as we assist them in integrating into our
community. At the same time, our commitment to ensuring that Jewish children in foster care enjoy a secure Jewish identity,
has also proved a challenge as we continually encourage their connections to Jewish institutions and life cycle events
without having secure ongoing funding in place. The promotion of JCFS’ financial assistance programs also has resulted in
us having to stretch the limits of our financial resources. And the list goes on……
We have been able to respond as well as we have largely because we have developed important relationships with
government, other human service agencies, and many generous donors. These relationships have enabled us to leverage
resources and serve people efficiently. Importantly, however, it is only with your continued involvement and support that we
will be able to continue to offer assistance and to help people live independent and satisfying lives, regardless of the
challenges of aging, disability, family dysfunction, isolation or economic hardship.
We are very grateful to our dedicated board of directors, loyal volunteers, professional and compassionate staff, our funders,
our donors and our community for recognizing our vital work and for continuing to support us.
Emily Shane
Executive Director
Jewish Child and Family Service  Annual Report 2010-2011
Message from Our President
This year marked the end of an era in the history of JCFS with the passing of Harry Walsh
(of blessed memory), the last of the thirty members of our community, who in 1952 came
together to create JCFS. The vision of these thirty individuals has greatly benefited the
Jewish community of Winnipeg. These leaders truly understood the meaning of tzedakah
and the importance of standing with people in times of need. As JCFS approaches its
sixtieth anniversary, it falls to this generation of board, staff, donors and volunteers to
ensure that the vision of these founders is carried forward.
It was particularly heartening this year to witness the support that JCFS received from its
funders. Our Agency continues to be one of main priorities of the Jewish Federation. As
well, the Province of Manitoba and the United Way continue to be very generous in their
financial contributions. Our Annual Supporters’ Campaign in the fall and the Passover Campaign in the spring were
incredibly successful this year, with both campaigns seeing an increase of over fifteen percent. What a testimony this is to the
generosity of our community!
Our Agency also benefits so greatly by those who give of their time. Over one hundred and fifty people volunteered this past
year. The positive impact that these people have on the lives of others is only surpassed by the satisfaction that the volunteers
receive by giving back to others.
It is very gratifying to be president of JCFS and to work with the board in setting the policy direction for the Agency. The
board is very excited that in the next few months we will be undertaking an assessment of community needs so that we have
the data to decide where best to focus the human and financial resources of the Agency. Please take the opportunity to
participate in this process. Your input will be invaluable in helping the board plan for the future.
Also, please polish up your dancing shoes and get ready to party next March! Two thousand and twelve is a very special year
in the history of Jewish social services in Winnipeg. Not only does this year mark the sixtieth anniversary of JCFS but it also
marks the one hundredth anniversary of the Winnipeg Jewish community organizing its first social service agency. We intend
to celebrate this Century of Caring with a variety of activities including a children’s carnival and a gala in March. We can
think of no better way to honour the memory of those whose vision and generosity have made what we have today possible
and to provide an endowment to carry our work forward for another hundred years.

Jewish Child and Family Service  Annual Report 2010-2011
Service Area Highlights
This year was highly productive in helping many families and/or individuals through counselling supports. The Counselling
program assisted 302 families and/or individuals. Twenty-eight of those were newcomer families who received language
specific counselling in English, Spanish, Hebrew, and Russian.
JCFS is proud to continue to offer counselling supports to Animikii Ozoson Child and Family Services Inc., a Manitoba First
Nations child welfare agency.
Supportive groups continued to be offered at the agency. In partnership with Hospice and Palliative Care Manitoba, JCFS ran
the Taking Steps: Bereavement Walking Group. As part of the agency’s membership on the Winnipeg Suicide Prevention
Network, JCFS also offered Making Strides: Survivors Of Suicide Bereavement Group, in partnership with SPEAK
(Suicide Prevention, Education Awareness, Knowledge).
The Communal Mental Health Program supported and assisted 151 Jewish individuals living with psychiatric differences.
Supports were also provided to their families. In combination with the Older Adult Services program, JCFS continued to
address the unique needs of seniors in our community also living with mental illness.
The “Chaverim: Building Wellness for Mental Health” group has continued to meet over this past year. This holistic
mental health wellness group now meets on a weekly basis and continues to offer social, cultural, spiritual and physical
recovery programming goals of clients. A fitness component continued to expand, in partnership with the Rose and Max
Rady Jewish Community Centre. Again this past year, Wellness group members proudly beautified the Asper Campus by
planting and maintaining the summer planters.
This year, JCFS became active in the area of Suicide Intervention. JCFS now offers the 2-day ASIST (Applied Suicide
Intervention Skills Training) workshop to both professionals and non-professionals in the community. JCFS staffs have
been trained in ASIST, which strengthens their ability to support a person at risk of suicide. The JCFS facilitator will be
delivering ASIST workshops in the Jewish community and the community at-large, in efforts to broaden the base of suicide
intervention trained caregivers.
JCFS acts as the regional arm of Jewish Immigrant Aid Services of Canada (JIAS), a nationally based organization whose
mandate is to serve Jewish immigrants and refugees to Canada. JCFS Resettlement staff provided immigration supports to
501 cases. Staff also assisted 93 families with their pre-migration needs. These are individuals of families who either visited
Canada to pursue immigration, or received ongoing support in their countries of origin while awaiting immigration approval.
Jewish Child and Family Service  Annual Report 2010-2011
Many of these families were initially welcomed to the community through the Jewish Federation of Winnipeg’s Grow
Winnipeg initiative.
The community continues to see a consistent level of immigration for the last several years. We welcomed 113 new families
to Winnipeg, comprising 343 people. This year the majority of the families received were from Israel, and the majority of
those originated from the former Soviet Union, but also from Ukraine, Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela and Ireland. Our agency
has also seen a rise in the number of newcomer seniors and provided supports to 60 seniors of primarily eastern European
descent. Approximately 50 of those arrived in the last year, having followed or accompanied their adult children who
recently settled in Winnipeg.
JCFS Integration staff continues to assist families in becoming part of Canadian community life by connecting families to
various community organizations or services and by offering many social, cultural, educational and instructional programs.
This year, workshop topics have included: English as an Additional Language (EAL) classes for Russian seniors,
conversational English, income tax information, first time homebuyer information, money management seminars, weekly
employment seminars, as well as holiday programs, Jewish lifecycle events (e.g. bar/bat mitzvahs), partnership in Yom
Hazikaron (Israel Memorial Day) commemorations, family activities, Youth and Senior performing arts choirs, etc.
The JCFS Newcomer Integration Employment support person continues to focus on the important employment needs of
newcomers to our community. Alongside Integration programming, this work area focuses specifically on supporting
newcomers to our community by assisting them in becoming job ready. This includes both direct supports and referral to
other, specialized employment service agencies. This year we launched the Yachad Mentorship Program, which is designed
Jewish Child and Family Service  Annual Report 2010-2011
to bring together immigrants to our community with established professionals in the community. The goal of this program is
to help facilitate the newcomers’ integration into the labour market.
This past year has been a productive one for the Older Adult Services (OAS) program. This program serves the needs of frail
and isolated Jewish elderly. It promotes functional independence, safety and access to community services and resources.
We provided support to 384 cases including specialty assistance to 103 Holocaust survivors. Supports to Holocaust survivors
included assistance with various Holocaust Claims Conference reparation applications. The agency continues to offer a
biweekly social group, Reaching Out, for survivors. In addition to the one-to-one involvement we provide to aging seniors,
our group programs continue to be a strong source of support. Social Connections has been an ongoing group for
individuals with early stage memory loss. The purpose is to provide social contact and intellectual stimulation for clients on
a weekly basis and provide respite for family caregivers.
The Tallman Fund continues to enhance our ability to offer transportation for clients. Through this fund we are able to
ensure our clients’ transportation to all of our group programs. On an individual basis, clients have been assisted with
transportation to meet their individual needs for accompanied errands and appointments on a much broader scale.
Older Adult Services workers and our case-aide have been actively involved in a wide range of situations as the needs of
seniors in our community continue to grow. Whether the issues are related to changes in physical or mental health, housing,
emotional support or assistance to family, workers are readily available to be involved through assessments and regular home
visits. Social work students enhance the program through their involvement in our field placement program in conjunction
with the University of Manitoba.
Support Services To Holocaust Survivors
This specialized service offers support, counselling and information to individuals, couples and families. Assistance with
applications for Holocaust Claims for reparation and related issues continue to be provided on a regular basis to over 100
individuals and/or families. Staff assist Holocaust survivors with the intricacies of Holocaust Claims Conference reparation
“Reaching Out”, a drop-in group, is held every other week. Consisting of 26-30 core attendees, this program offers
discussion, entertainment and ongoing socialization.
Through JCFS, clients are matched with volunteers of all ages and varying backgrounds. Students, retired individuals,
professionals and people from all walks of life contribute their time, talent and energy as JCFS volunteers.
Volunteers provide support to clients as friendly visitors, accompanying isolated seniors for coffee or a ride in the park.
Grocery shoppers and van drivers take clients to purchase their groceries or do the shopping for them. Daily-‘shalomers’
provide ongoing social contact, which gives isolated seniors a connection with a person who is looking out for their security
Jewish Child and Family Service  Annual Report 2010-2011
and well-being. Big brothers/sisters are positive role models for young children. Proctors are advocates for our clients with
mental health issues. Tutors and host families help newcomers to acclimatize to their new life in Winnipeg. Administrative
volunteers provide assistance in our office in a variety of areas.
Please see our complete list of volunteers in this report.
Partnerships in Caring
Machon Madrichim – A Jewish youth leadership program which focuses on developing young leaders with a deep sense
of commitment to the Winnipeg community, the State of Israel, and core Jewish values and traditions. This three year
old initiative is generously funded by the Winnipeg Jewish Federation. The planning committee is represented by JCFS,
The Jewish Federation of Winnipeg - Grow Winnipeg, as well as a number of community volunteers.
A new collaboration with the Salvation Army’s “Community venture-developmental day program” has created a new
opportunity for volunteers with special needs to be involved in a supervised program. Our clients have gained additional
support from this new outreach initiative.
Jewish Child and Family Service Volunteer Services Manager, Einat Paz Keynan helped plan and facilitate the
community wide celebrations for Yom Ha’zikaron and Yom Ha’atzmaut. This helps ensure that volunteers have
opportunities to develop new skills and participate more fully in community activities.
JACS (Jewish Alcoholics, Chemically Dependent Persons and Significant Others)
JCFS continues to support the needs and efforts of Jews in our community seeking culturally specific addiction recovery
services and guidance. JCFS supports the Winnipeg chapter of JACS (Jewish Alcoholics, Chemically Dependent Persons
and Significant Others). JACS Winnipeg has been running 12-step meetings with Jewish content once per week at the
Asper Campus since August 2007. Through the support of grants and donations, JACS Winnipeg members again attended the
JACS Toronto Retreat, as part of their continuing education and development to better outreach to, and assist local
community members dealing with issues of addiction.
Jewish Child and Family Service is fully mandated under the Child and Family Services Act of Manitoba to provide child
welfare and protection services for Jewish children and families in the province. The Child Welfare program worked with 57
families on either a voluntary or involuntary basis.
In 2010, JCFS cared for a total of 28 foster children, our highest number of children foster care in decades. Two-thirds of
these children are between the ages of 12 and 18. JCFS has observed complex issues facing parents in our community which
impact parenting their teens and affecting those coming into care which include: mental health issues, addictions, family
violence, abuse, neglect, poverty and isolation, family stress leading to inappropriate discipline (bordering on abuse), defiant
and out-of-control teen behaviour, trouble with the law, youth gang involvement, truancy, teen drug and alcohol abuse,
immigration stress/cultural clash, etc.
Jewish Child and Family Service  Annual Report 2010-2011
The agency continues to strive to maximize the development of strong Jewish identity in our foster children through
partnership with various community organizations to enhance exposure of Jewish foster children to their Jewish culture. This
year, seven of our foster children attended Gray Academy of Jewish Education. The Jewish day and residential camps have
also been strong partners in accepting and meeting the needs of Jewish wards, as part of the collective communal
responsibility for raising these children. Grant funding from the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba has also made it possible for
JCFS to offer foster families opportunities to celebrate Jewish holidays such as: Passover, Chanukah and Purim, participate
in an authentic Shabbat dinner at the home of a local rabbi, and celebrate Bar and Bat Mitzvahs of foster children.
The JCFS Adoption program was actively involved this year working with 10 Jewish families at various stages in the
adoption process.
Post Adoption Services
In an attempt to reconnect with their birth families, the Agency provided 6 adult adoptees with information about their birth
family histories and also provided access to the Manitoba Post Adoption Registry.
Jewish Child and Family Service  Annual Report 2010-2011
This year, the Chaplaincy program provided 2,092 visits to hospital patients, nursing home residents, residents in
correctional centres and other residential facilities. In addition, 191.75 hours were spent conducting group programs for
Shabbat and holidays such as Succoth, Chanukah, Purim, Passover, etc.
The program has been challenged by stricter adherence to privacy legislation within health care facilities. This has impacted
the community chaplain’s ability to access Jewish patients in those facilities. There has also been an increase in the number
of Jewish residents in non-Jewish personal care homes. The community chaplain has spent increasing amounts of time
meeting the pastoral care needs of those Jewish residents.
This year 664 individuals and families received short-term emergency financial assistance with $101,460 distributed as
financial aid.
JIAS Canada is no longer able to provide financial assistance for Jewish newcomers to our community.
The Asper Helping Hand Initiative
The Asper Helping Hand Initiative (TAHHI), an interest free loan program, is now in its eighth year of assisting members of
the Jewish community of Manitoba who are experiencing temporary financial hardship. Ongoing funding for this program is
supported generously by The Asper Foundation and the David and Ruth Asper Fund at the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba.
To date, TAHHI has advanced over $389,050 assisting 115 individuals and/or families in need. These loans have assisted
students with paying for their educational expenses, newcomers with various resettlement expenses, families with catching
up bill payments, families celebrating life-cycle events and first-time homebuyers with covering expenses related to their
home purchase.
Total loans advanced - $389,050 – 115 loans
2003 - $17,200
2004 - $25,500
2005 - $53,900

2009 - $29,000
2010 - $81,650
2011 - $34,000 (to May 6, 2011)
The Eve and Harry Vickar Community Assistance Program
The Eve and Harry Vickar Community Assistance Program (VCAP) was launched in January 2006. This program is
designed to support Jewish individuals and families facing significant financial challenges. It has been established with the
Jewish Child and Family Service  Annual Report 2010-2011
generous support of the L. Kerry Vickar Charitable Foundation as a designated gift through the Jewish Federation of
Winnipeg. This program is designed to make a significant difference in the lives of Jewish individuals whose daily struggles
due to financial constraints impedes their full participation in Jewish community life and in society generally.
To date (to March 31, 2011), The Eve and Harry Vickar Community Assistance Program has distributed over $316,415
assisting 111 individuals and/or families faced with major financial challenges.
Shelley Garfield, Program Manager of The Asper Helping Hand Initiative and The Eve and Harry Vickar Community
Financial Assistance Program, participated in various workshops throughout the year, presented to immigrant newcomers.
This year Shelley participated in a forum on Jewish Poverty co-sponsored by the United Jewish People’s Order and the
Shalom Aleichem Centre.
Tzedakah Fund
Through the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba 45 individuals and families were provided with an interest free loan to help with
basic needs. $28,480 was distributed through the Tzedakah Fund this year.
This year 337 Jewish individuals and families received assistance through a community-wide campaign which solicits
contributions to help those who find it a hardship to meet the extra costs of Passover. One Hundred, Fifty-Nine Passover
food hampers were distributed with the help of Gwen Secter Creative Living Centre, the Manitoba Transit Heritage
Association and the Ben Gurion Society (CJA donors/Jewish Federation of Winnipeg). 564 individuals/ families contributed
to Passover Assistance this year. A complete list of contributors can be found in this report.
Jewish Child and Family Service provides field instruction for the University of Manitoba Faculty of Social Work and the
Wurzweiler School of Social Work, Yeshiva University. JCFS offers students a unique opportunity to work in a family-based
agency. Because of its cultural orientation, the Agency has gained a reputation as an interesting field placement. This past
year we offered field instruction to four University of Manitoba students who had an interest in learning about the multifaceted approach to social services offered by JCFS.
Every year we receive hundreds of requests for information on available social service resources and programs in the
community. The Agency also distributes the names of homemakers and keeps a registry of available homes for emergency
