Why Give to Jewish Family Service?
Help us continue to bridge the gap for those who desperately need our services and the costs associated with mental health care.
Jewish Family Service of San Antonio (JFS) was founded in 1973 as a resource to San Antonio and the surrounding areas, and has been providing exemplary care to those in need and building Mental Health, Senior and Social Service programs for 45 years. We provide affordable counseling and psychiatry to clients of all ages, and case management services to seniors and the disabled.
Mental health care needs for our community continues to grow at a rapid pace. Last year alone, JFS saw over 2,500 people in need – including adult individuals, children, and families – and this number continues to grow each year. According to Mental Health Texas, 1 in 5 adult Texans will experience a mental health concern this year, and over 20% of children age 9-17 have a diagnosed mental illness.
