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.

In San Antonio, an average counseling session runs around $150.
At JFS, the most a sliding-scale-fee client will pay is $80 (average used to be around $35).
Since the pandemic started, more than 75% of these clients have needed a reduced fee. Now the average fee is around $12!
You can help cover the cost of those needing affordable mental health options by donating now.

Make a Difference

Your gift will help us pave the road to healing and recovery.

Your gift will have a significant impact on those we serve year-round and allow us to focus on a key number of areas including:

  • Expand our group therapy offerings to provide new counseling approaches
  • Bring a series of educational programs into the community which will allow us to put a spotlight on much-needed resources and services
  • Hire additional therapists and social workers

Here’s how your donation could make a difference:


Weekly pay for a Licensed Therapist


Two months of counseling for an entire family


Provides a psychiatric evaluation for an adolescent


One counseling session using our sliding-scale fee structure


Fills a holiday food basket for a senior in need
