Our Impact

How do we measure impact? One life-changing difference at-a-time.

Each year, Jewish Vocational Service of MetroWest New Jersey serves more than 2,000 unique individuals from across our community. Unique in terms of their circumstances. Unique in terms of their abilities. Unique in terms of their needs. Unique in terms of their potential.

As a result, we at JVS measure our impact incrementally—not simply by the number of people we serve, but by the progress they make on their journeys to employment, self-sufficiency, and independence. One life-changing difference at a time.
