An organization cannot reach its vision and goals without the right people. Just as clients, programs, and equipment are essential for success, so are employees. Without the right employees, even a well-equipped organization will flounder. At JFS, we recognize that our employees are our greatest asset.

Our agency is an equal opportunity employer dedicated to providing vital services to a diverse population in need in the metropolitan Denver area. We help seniors age in place, provide quality mental health counseling to individuals and families, offer training and job placement to people with developmental disabilities, and provide food and financial assistance to people in crisis. Every year JFS benefits more than 24,000 people of all faiths, races, ages, incomes, and abilities.

JFS is very proud of our positive work culture, as well as our recognition as a “best place to work in Denver.” Our 140 employees enjoy competitive salaries and benefits, including a generous leave program. JFS is a nonsectarian, nonprofit, and inclusive organization.
