Jewish Family Service of Greater New Orleans (JFS) is a constituent agency of the Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans and a community impact partner of United Way of Southeast Louisiana. Established over 65 years ago, Jewish Family Service is a “whole person environment,” serving the residents of Greater New Orleans without regard to race, religion, disability, gender, or sexual orientation.
JFS has a partnership with the Jewish Community Day School (JCDS), a Pre K-5 elementary school, where JFS provides a school counselor three days per week for 4 hours. JFS has offered workshops for parents, taught classroom sessions with students in all grade levels, held one-on-one sessions with students, and consulted with faculty and administration.
In addition 3 hours are spent each week at the JFS office attending weekly clinical staff meeting, biweekly supervision, individual therapy clients and running groups.
