What We Do

Jewish Family Service of Greater New Orleans (JFS) is a social service agency dedicated to preserving, strengthening, and enhancing the well-being and self-sufficiency of our community. We serve individuals and families of all faiths and at every stage of life. Our programs and services focus on providing accessible and affordable mental health care, case management, teen suicide prevention, and special services for the Jewish community.


What You Can Do

Our clients benefit from a variety of gifts. Whether you give of your time, money, or social media likes, you can make an impact. Your generosity can guarantee access to mental health services, financial assistance,  holistic care, and more. Join us in building a social safety net for our vulnerable neighbors and friends.


Jewish Family Service was initially created when the Jewish Children’s Home closed in 1948. JFS became a separate organization, with its own 501 (c)(3) status in 1976, and opened its doors to people of all faiths in 1982. JFS now serves individuals and families in the Greater New Orleans area, regardless of race, religion, disability, gender, or sexual orientation. Services are available on a sliding-scale fee based on household income.

Jewish Family Service is a constituent agency of the Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans and a community impact partner of United Way of Southeast Louisiana.
