The largest multi-service organization of its kind in the region, JEVS Human Services (JEVS) was founded in 1941. Operating with an annual budget of nearly $100 million, JEVS has approximately 1,000 employees and over two dozen successful programs providing skills development, job readiness and career services, vocational rehabilitation, recovery services, adult and residential day services, and in-home personal assistance.
At JEVS, they believe in giving people possibilities—opportunities to be self-sufficient and supported. Each year they touch nearly 25,000 lives, focusing on individuals with physical, developmental and emotional challenges as well as those facing adverse socioeconomic conditions including unemployment and underemployment.
The JEVS mission is to Make Hope Happen today while creating meaningful change for tomorrow. JEVS stakeholders work to shape and influence public policy to better serve the populations who need them the most. Acting in collaboration with advocacy partners, JEVS works to create sustainable solutions to the underlying issues facing the people they serve.
Since its inception, JEVS Human Services has been committed to the Jewish principles of Tzedakah and Tikkun Olam. Tzedakah refers to the religious obligation to ‘do what is right and just’ and is also the Hebrew word for ‘charity.’ Tikkun Olam is also a Hebrew phase for ‘repairing the world.’
Programs and services offered by JEVS include: Education & Career Services; Community Supports & Adult Residential; Long-Term Supports & In-Home Care; Employment for People with Disabilities; Youth & Young Adult Services; Behavioral Health & Recovery.
