JF&CS Atlanta is recognized by its peer agencies in the Jewish communal world as well as by larger organizations in the greater community for its outstanding program management. Now in an exciting development, we have entered into a collaborative agreement with the Association of Jewish Family & Children’s Agencies (AJFCA) to provide a tool to help other member organizations be more effective in strategic and program planning. Through PEPS (Program Planning & Evaluation System) software, agencies will have a web-based set of score-card analysis tools for new and existing programs based on programmatic impact and fiscal performance.
Jewish Family & Career Services is happy to announce that we have been selected to participate in a consortium, led by Seedco, for the Heath Exchange in Georgia. The consortium has been awarded funding to provide Health Navigator services in our area. These services are designed to help those in need of assistance with the process of enrolling in the correct health insurance plan for their personal needs. For more information, please see the Seedco press release.
We are grateful to those that shared their story with us.
HAMSA, or Helping Atlantans Manage Substance Abuse, is a comprehensive substance abuse program for the Jewish community that is building bridges between Jews affected by substance abuse and their families and the support of the Jewish community. Together with clergy and members of the community, JF&CS’s HAMSA program is working to dispel the myth that Jews are not affected by substance abuse and addiction issues. HAMSA serves the community as an all-inclusive resource for education and clinical services relating to substance abuse; offering Jews affected by addiction and their families a coordinated and sustained path to sobriety informed by Judaism.
