Improving life through employment and productivity, recognizing that personal development is a lifetime endeavor.
The JVS Mission is Rooted in Our Core Values.
While these values come to us from the Jewish tradition, their power is truly universal.
The Power of Work
We believe that work transforms lives, and that helping people to find jobs helps them live better lives.
Repair the World
We are committed to making the world a better place by providing opportunities to job seekers from all walks of life, helping them achieve self-sufficiency through employment.
Respect for the Individual
In this belief, we honor the tradition of charity towards others that supports their dignity and desire to improve their own lives.
Values of Collaboration
To be effective, we bring together the resources of the Jewish Federation, government, business and community-based organizations to enable individuals to achieve success.
