About JFS

Established in 1964, Jewish Family Service of Greater Harrisburg, (JFS), is a full service, non-profit social service agency offering services to any resident in central Pennsylvania, without regard to age, race, religion or creed, sexual orientation or disability.  JFS is part of a nationwide referral network for social services.

Our mission is to promote and strengthen healthy family life for the Greater Harrisburg Community.  We focus on empowering clients to remain or become active and productive members of the community.  Many of our services are offered in-home to provide access to the homebound.  Our dedicated volunteers are critical to the success of our organization and are an important component of our in-home services to seniors and physically disabled clients.

JFS works to meet the needs of all individuals throughout the life cycle, and we continually refine our programs to adapt to the changing needs of our clients.
