In response to trends and increasing demands in our fields, including changes in healthcare and human services that demand a more integrated and comprehensive approach to providing services to people facing life's challenges, the two associations are jointly forming a new entity that will more effectively and holistically support local Jewish family service and workforce development agencies.

The new Network of Jewish Human Services Agencies, as it is now being referred to will be forward thinking, entrepreneurial, financially sustainable, and focused on solutions for individuals and families. 

We look forward to sharing more about the Network for Jewish Human Service Agencies in the coming months. 
Watch for the new NETWORK newsletter, coming this Fall!
