Jewish Family Service of Nashville and Middle Tennessee invites all readers of The Observer to engage with the organization’s new website—whether as clients, volunteers, donors, interested community members, or as some combination of the four. The website can be found at www.jfsnashville.org.
The website’s redesign was undertaken as part of a broader marketing and communications strategic planning process, supported by the generosity of the Kroll Charitable Foundation.
The new website, which was launched shortly after the start of the Jewish New Year, is organized around the theme, “Navigating Life’s Transitions, Together.” The two parts of the tagline encapsulate key elements of JFS’s offerings and philosophy. Transitions are part of life for everyone. Whether it be the adolescent passage to adulthood, the shift to retirement, the search for new work, the painful experiences of job loss, divorce, illness, and grief, and much more, JFS is here to help individuals and families of all types navigate these transitions. Offering 25 programs and services, JFS provides confidential care and treats all clients with compassion, professionalism, dignity, and respect. Jewish Family Service is able to deliver this level and quality of support because of the many stakeholders working together to advance the agency’s mission.
JFS’s professional staff work together to develop relevant social services from Jewish perspectives that meet the ever-changing needs in the community. They work together with each individual client to set goals to empower them with resources to help them lead independent, satisfying, and productive lives.
JFS’s volunteers, donors, and grantors, including the Jewish Federation and Jewish Foundation of Nashville and Middle Tennessee, work together with the agency to provide the resources needed to serve the community, and to help its members navigate life’s transitions, together.
