Boulder JFS believes in strengthening the community by providing vital services to people in need. Every day, JFS helps people overcome difficult life challenges to reach their full potential. Boulder JFS helps older adults maintain a high quality of life through programs and services that keep them supported, connected, and engaged.

  • Emergency Assistance—Provides financial assistance to older adults and people with disabilities so they may remain housed.
  • Homemaker Services—Non-medical in-home care management to help older adults live safely and independently in their own homes with a focus on assessment, planning, and care coordination.
  • Friendly Visitor and Para-chaplain Program—Pairing a Friendly Visitor volunteer with an older adult to promote meaningful friendships and prevent social isolation.
  • Holiday Services—Trained volunteers conduct Shabbat and holiday celebrations at residential communities, giving residents an important connection to their faith.
