Mission: Jewish Family Service of San Diego was founded in 1918 by a
consortium of women's clubs who sought to address the myriad
of human needs of the time. Today, JFS is a comprehensive
social service organization with nine locations throughout
San Diego County and an office in Palm Desert, serving the
Coachella Valley. From its early grassroots origins, the
agency now serves over 20,000 people annually.

The Jewish Community Disaster Fund has been established by the
United Jewish Federation of San Diego County, the Jewish
Community Foundation and Jewish Family Service of San Diego.
The Fund?s sole objective is to provide assistance to Jewish
families and others in need who have been affected by the
devastating fires ravaging our region as well as any rebuilding
to the communal infrastructure that is needed. Funds will be
held by the Jewish Community Foundation and administered by a
committee representing the three organizations and the Jewish
community at large. No overhead costs will be taken from the
fund, and all dollars raised will help those in need.

You can help by donating to the Jewish Community Disaster Fund.
