Every year, more than 4,000 people turn to Jewish Vocational Service for help.

Our mission is founded on the Jewish teaching that helping people help themselves is the highest form of tzedakah, or social justice. Moreover, our vision of creating a world where everyone is empowered to fulfill their own potential, regardless of the challenges they face, compels us to reach out to “the others” among us—those whom society often ignores.

JVS provides vital services that help improve the employability, increase the self-sufficiency, and enhance the quality-of-life of thousands of individuals and families throughout Northeastern New Jersey.
