WEST PALM BEACH, FL, USA, April 15, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — Ferd & Gladys Alpert Jewish Family Service of Palm Beach County (Alpert JFS) announced today it is celebrating the organization’s fifty-year anniversary with a special “Honoring Our Past, Securing Our Future” campaign. For half a century, the Palm Beach County-headquartered non-sectarian nonprofit agency has provided wraparound services to ensure the well-being of people of all ages, stages of life, and backgrounds, including children, families, and survivors of the Holocaust. Today, Alpert JFS provides comprehensive human services to approximately 12,500 people each year from Boynton Beach to Vero Beach – with the need continuing to grow.

“When Alpert JFS was founded in 1974, there were limited services for the support we provide to individuals with mental health challenges, vulnerable seniors, families facing food insecurity, and people with disabilities, and there was little coordination among agencies,” said Marc Hopin, Chief Executive Officer of Alpert JFS. “In our fifty years as a multi-disciplinary agency with over two dozen programs and services, we have addressed these issues by establishing a more efficient and effective system of delivering care to those in need.”

Key programs and services offered by Alpert JFS include:

Counseling and Psychiatry

Care Management

Bereavement Support

Mental Health First Aid

Alpert JFS Kosher Food Pantry

Holocaust Survivors Assistance

Levine Jewish Residential & Family Service

ElderCare360® and JFSComForCare Home Care

Adult Day Socialization Program at the Alpert JFS Center for Belonging and Wellbeing

Mentoring 4 Kids Program

Jewish Addiction Outreach & Support

Domestic Abuse Support

Relationships and Decisions Teen Fellows

Career Connections

And more

According to Alpert JFS, the need for services continues to grow as the population expands in Palm Beach County. Emerging from the pandemic, unprecedented economic and mental health challenges have left thousands of people struggling to get by, with more people turning to the agency for help than ever before.

“By making a gift to the Alpert JFS 50th Anniversary Campaign, donors are investing in individuals and families during their most challenging times,” said Gary Hoffman, Alpert JFS Board Chair and President. “It is our goal to foster a community where each person, no matter their age, background or current situation, can reach their potential and find a path to a safe, secure, and stable life.”

For 50 years, Alpert JFS has maintained the gold standard of social service delivery in Palm Beach County – most recently being named the 2023 Hats Off Nonprofit of the Year (Large Category) by Nonprofits First® – and through the launch of its 50th Anniversary Campaign, plans to remain the hallmark of excellence for the next 50 years and beyond.
