Strategic Partners

Who We Work With

Jewish Family Services has a strong and successful history of cooperation and collaboration within the Workforce Development System, as well as with other providers, employers, and community organizations. Jewish Family Services actively seeks partnerships to maximize opportunities and leverage existing resources.

Jewish Family Services with the collaboration with our partners, have led the effort to coordinate an annual city-wide job fair. Now in our 12th year, these job fairs target management and professional positions. These collaborative efforts impact the community positively by leveraging existing resources and maximizing opportunities for job seekers and businesses.

We are proud to have several established community partners that bring important and valuable resources to build our capacity.
