Executive Director: Ned Goldberg

 

The agency began in 1855 as an orphanage, and is currently the oldest existing Jewish child welfare organization in the United States, as well as the only regional Jewish child’s welfare agency in the U.S.

 

Primary services include scholarships for college education, overnight summer camp and special needs. The agency also conducts adoptive home studies and consults on problems related to the development and needs of children. The agency also remembers needy Jewish children during Jewish holidays with gifts and cards. For many Jewish children, the JCRS is the agency of last resort when it comes to providing funds for needed services.
