Who We Are

Throughout our hundred year plus history of providing emergency services to people in crisis, through economic depressions, world wars, immigrants resettling here to avoid persecution, 9/11, hurricanes, other natural disasters, and now Covid-19, — we are here to help.

The mission of Jewish Family Service of Central NJ (JFSCNJ), a non-sectarian health and social service agency, is to strengthen family life and encourages personal growth by providing specialized quality services to individuals and families in need in Union County, NJ. The Agency is a licensed mental health outpatient agency and a licensed and accredited homecare agency.

A grateful beneficiary of the Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ, we have a diversified funding stream that includes federal, state and county funds, grants, individuals, major planned gifts, and special events. A leading non-profit agency for Union County’s Division on Aging, we have been providing quality health and social services to the Union County community for over 107 years.

A diverse staff, who speak 11 languages, provides a full range of services from mental health counseling, to Kosher Meals On Wheels, an active Food Pantry and Urban Community Garden, to over 8,250 individuals, families and the elderly a year.
