JFS also provides disability services, senior adult services, and case management, employment services, Jewish chaplaincy services at area hospitals, community outreach, financial assistance programs and volunteer opportunities.

There are volunteer opportunities available weekly, bi-monthly, monthly, or episodically for special events. Volunteers can work directly with clients, in administrative positions, or in fundraising.
