Justice, Justice! Your gift matched

At this fall harvest season and the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, how might we live the call for justice? How might we make the East Bay more welcoming for everyone? Join JFCS East Bay in building a community where everyone can flourish with dignity.

How Can We Welcome Justice into our Community?

  • Ensuring that Holocaust survivors can age in place safely in their own homes.
  • Helping low-income families with young children find ways for their school to meet their children’s needs.
  • Assisting Afghan refugees who arrived in the East Bay with temporary residency status to stay legally in the United States.
  • Supporting LGBTI refugees with mental health counseling and home hosting.

JFCS East Bay’s case managers, therapists, and social workers partner with our clients to help them find security and justice. And increasingly, we are working on a systemic level to advocate for a more just East Bay.
