Jewish Family Service of Colorado



Jewish Family Service of Colorado (JFS) believes in strengthening the community by providing vital services to people in need. Every day, JFS helps people overcome life’s challenges to live fuller, more meaningful lives. Founded in 1872, JFS is a nonsectarian, nonprofit human services agency serving metro Denver and Boulder. JFS helps seniors live independently at home, provides quality mental health counseling, offers training and job placement to those with barriers to employment, and provides food and financial aid to people in crisis. Every year, the agency benefits more than 25,000 people of all ages, faiths, and incomes.

Jewish Family Service serves people in need—all kinds of need. From mental health services to support for seniors to family safety net services to helping employ those with barriers to employment, Jewish Family Service is there to help people at all stages of life overcome difficult challenges to live fuller, more meaningful lives. 

The people served by Jewish Family Service are as diverse and varied as the metro Denver community. Our services are available to all, regardless of age, race, faith, sexual orientation, or economic status. Life’s challenges don’t discriminate—and neither do we.

With 30 programs, the agency offers essential services for a lifetime of need. Our compassionate, highly skilled professional staff and caring volunteers are constantly innovating new services and refining existing programs to meet emerging community needs.
