Since 1913, the Jewish Family Service of Akron has served the greater Akron and Summit County community. In 2009, in response to the increasing aging of the community, JFS core programs became specialized to meet the unique needs of both seniors and the adults who care for them.
JFS enhances the mental, emotional and social well being of individuals ages 45 and older and their families through Counseling, Care Management and Education consistent with Jewish values, however, JFS serves both the Jewish and non-Jewish community.
Because many of our clients are low income, no one is denied services based on their inability to pay. Fees are calculated on a sliding scale.
