Local Agencies & Services


Our local beneficiary agencies and services address the evolving and growing needs of our Jewish community. Caring for the most vulnerable is the hallmark of the Federation. By supporting the Annual Campaign, our donors continue to enable the Federation to remain deeply committed to this task.

"When I was in a car accident, the Jewish Federation provided assistance to me when I needed it the most. The services they provided for me are just a few of the services available at no cost. My wife and I make a donation to the Federation every year and never thought we would ever need their services. Thanks for all you do."
