In Ref lection
Joyce Kalstein
Board President
For 75 years, families in Mercer County knew there was a place to turn for a “safety net”
for life’s unexpected challenges. Although social needs may have changed over these past
decades, the mission of Jewish Family & Children’s Service has remained the same.
The agency’s 75th anniversary celebrated the positive impact that the work of JFCS has brought
to many so many individuals and families. The time honored Jewish values of community,
charity and improving the world are corner stones of the JFCS mission, past, present and as we
go into the future.
Linda Meisel
Executive Director
From decade to decade, the community makes new demands, technologies change, and new
social needs arise as others persist, yet the central mission of JFCS, to help others, remains
as strong as it was in 1937 when we were the Jewish Family Welfare Board. We are deeply
grateful to the leadership and vision of board members, volunteers and staff members, past
and present, who translate these values into action.
As we move ahead into our next 75 years, JFCS board members, volunteers and staff continue
to commit to the legacy of building programs and services that meet the present needs and
anticipate future needs within the constantly changing world around us.
JFCS Mission Statement
Jewish Family & Children’s Service of Greater Mercer County is dedicated to
strengthening families and individuals by providing a wide range of social services and
programs, including therapy, information and referral, support, education and advocacy.
