It serves people with the most severe conditions and those likely to be long term, including consumers with forensic issues.

JF&CS Atlanta is recognized by its peer agencies in the Jewish communal world as well as by larger organizations in the greater community for its outstanding program management. Now in an exciting development, we have entered into a collaborative agreement with the Association of Jewish Family & Children’s Agencies (AJFCA) to provide a tool to help other member organizations be more effective in strategic and program planning. Through PEPS (Program Planning & Evaluation System) software, agencies will have a web-based set of score-card analysis tools for new and existing programs based on programmatic impact and fiscal performance.
Jewish Family & Career Services is happy to announce that we have been selected to participate in a consortium, led by Seedco, for the Heath Exchange in Georgia. The consortium has been awarded funding to provide Health Navigator services in our area. These services are designed to help those in need of assistance with the process of enrolling in the correct health insurance plan for their personal needs.
