Emergency (Short Term) Needs

Indigent Burial Assistance

JFS provides help for those faced with the loss of a loved one and are without the means to pay for their funeral. JFS works with local funeral homes and cemeteries to assist families at their most vulnerable time.

Short Term In-Home Assistance

JFS provides help to seniors that require short term in-home care services due to a recent hospitalization, rehabilitation center stay, and any other situation that would require short term in-home assistance

Hurricane season has begun. Ruth & Norman Rales Jewish Family Services (“JFS”) is prepared to assist you once a hurricane or tropical storm has passed.

Please fill out and submit this form if you would like JFS to call you and check in on you before and after a storm. Once it has been determined that it is safe to be on the roads, JFS may deploy volunteers to your home to check on you and/or bring you supplies if needed.
