JFCS provides a safe, welcoming, and inclusive environment for members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Questioning (LGBTQ+) community of all ages and life stages. Our LGBTQ Initiative and comprehensive social services are provided in an environment that embraces, affirms, and celebrates sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. In addition, we provide specialized events and programming supporting the intersectionality of Jewish and LGBTQ+ identities.
JFCS services support LGBTQ+ individuals, their family members and friends, and organizations and agencies looking to be more affirming and inclusive to LGBTQ+ community members. They include adult, teen, and youth services, community events, trainings and workshops, support groups, counseling, connection to resources, and the Dear Ally anonymous Q&A forum.
