Ruth & Norman Rales Jewish Family Services
(March 13, 2020) - Ruth & Norman Rales Jewish Family Services (JFS) continues to plan for the challenges posed by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) threat and adapt our services in order to continue to meet the needs to the best of our ability. As always, our highest priority is the safety and well-being of our clients, members, staff and volunteers.
Though there is no immediate danger or threat known to us, in accordance with guidance on limiting social contact, the Federation, where our main office is located, is proactively scaling back activities on the Campus. The work of JFS will continue with some modifications in service.
As of Monday, March 16th, all client activities at the Weisman Delray Community Center and programs of Career and Employment Services will cease. To the extent we are able, we will use technology in order remain in contact with our Members and clients. The Jacobson Family Food Pantry and our Senior Services programs, including our Holocaust Survivor Assistance program, will remain operating as normal. Several departments working out of the Boca Raton office will be relocated to off-campus JFS locations and will work remotely. Clinical services will remain operational with some modifications via the use of technology.
Because of our unique role in providing services to our most vulnerable residents, JFS will continue to provide essential services and is prepared to meet the anticipated needs when they arise. The Federation has made it clear that they will be our partners throughout this process and have been extremely sensitive to our needs.
If you or a neighbor are in need of assistance, please call our main number at 561-852-3333.
We will continue to communicate with you regarding developments related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) threat. Updates will be posted on our website (ralesjfs.org) and on our Facebook page (facebook.com/ralesjfs).
Ruth & Norman Rales Jewish Family Services offers help, hope and humanity through our comprehensive range of programs and services which support people of all ages and beliefs.
