Moving Forward Together

We believe that when everyone has a chance to reach their full potential, our whole community is stronger.

Our Shared Challenge

Every day, we meet people with a deep desire to get back on their feet and move forward. But struggling to make ends meet day-to-day means there’s less time and energy to focus on well-being or think about planning for the long-term.

Our Call to Action

The JFS Approach

Moving Forward means something different to everyone. It’s our job to learn what it means to each individual and family, and to empower them with the tools and connections to take the next steps.
