We’re Celebrating Our 142nd Birthday!

142nd birthday

On April 26, 1874, United Hebrew Charities, our forerunner organization, was created. United Hebrew Charities eventually became known as Jewish Family Service of New York, and, in 1978, merged with the Jewish Board of Guardians to create the Jewish Board of Family & Children’s Services.

A lot of things have changed since then, but much has remained the same: we are still committed to empowering people to lead rich and full lives. We are proud to be a part of long and successful legacy of helping generations of families and communities.
