A helping hand in times of crisis.
Crises can happen to anyone. In trying times, JFS offers both financial and emotional support to help struggling families get back on their feet and on the road to self-sufficiency. Specific funds are used to help with emergencies such as rent, medical needs, utility bills and groceries. JFS collaborates with organizations throughout the community to provide the best support possible.
JFS, in partnership with the Jewish Federation of Greater Kansas City, the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation and other foundations, manages funds to help community members meet emergency and long-term needs. Qualifying recipients must live in the Greater Kansas City (five county) area.
