Here we are in January of 2022, having had only a few weeks of life begin to feel “normal" again. Now, as we start a new year, we’re still wondering where we're headed as the pandemic continues.
At JFCS, our services continue, no matter what. Our older adults receive their Kosher Meals on Wheels (KMOW). Children and adults receive essential psychotherapy both in-person and virtually. Corner Market Food Pantry recipients continue to meet our staff outside in order to receive much needed food and household supplies. Our case managers are in constant communication with all of our seniors and families. And our intake line is open to the hundreds of new calls for help that we receive each month.
So, for all if us at JFCS, 2022 represents a new year of opportunity - a chance to have a positive impact on those around us. It is a new year of helping and supporting thousands of people who depend on us for life's most basic needs.
Today is Tu B’shvat (15th of Shevat), the new year for trees. As the trees begin to sprout, grow, and gain strength in the new year, so to do we here at JFCS strive to emulate this by providing new growth opportunities and strength to those around us in our community.
From my heart to all of you,
I wish you a 2022 filled with health, happiness and hope.
