Jewish Family & Career Services

JFCS: A Year in Review


In 2020, the global COVID-19 crisis tested everything we have learned in our 112-year history as a human services agency. Our clients faced new and unexpected challenges, as did our staff, and we adapted to provide services to those in our community who need it most. Despite these challenges, we were able to impact clients across all of our core service areas and are proud to report that in 2020, Jewish Family & Career Services ensured:

  • 183 refugees and immigrants were assisted in career recredentialing and career laddering. This is a 50% increase in the number of people served than in 2019.
  • 203 individuals and families were given better access to food, toiletries and household necessities. This is a 45% increase in the number of people served than in 2019.
  • 537 Louisvillians were guided through career exploration and transitions. This is a 75% increase in the number of people served than in 2019.
  • 847 older adults and family caregivers were given support to help manage the aging process. This is a 32% increase in the number of people served than in 2019.
