Inspired by the Jewish principle of “Tikkun Olam,” repairing the world one life at a time, Jewish Family Service Agency supports people of all backgrounds, providing professional social services to families and individuals in times of need. For over 40 years, the Jewish Family Service Agency has provided a variety of much-needed Services to meet the changing and emerging challenges in the Southern Nevada community, including counseling, senior services, emergency assistance, a food pantry, and an adoption program. Our primary goal is to meet our clients' needs directly, but if additional services are necessary, we will refer to one of the many agencies in our network of relationships. We pride ourselves on providing professional services in a confidential setting. Many services are offered free of charge or on a sliding scale; third party insurance is also accepted for counseling services
