Our Leadership

Executive Committee

Jewish Family & Career Services thrives today as one of the largest and most progressive human services agencies in our community thanks to the legacy of our leadership.

Leadership of a cause "to serve the needs of others" is not inspired by a desire for fame or fortune. The individuals who committed to guide our agency were driven by a genuine concern for others and a passion for their community. Indeed, our leaders have changed the world for thousands of people they will never even meet.
