Jewish Family Services of Middlesex County with offices in Milltown and Monroe Township, New Jersey, is a multi-service non-profit agency.   For thirty years, Jewish Family Services (formerly Jewish Family & Vocational Service) has been committed to helping individuals and families realize a fulfilling life experience at home, in the workplace, and in the community by providing effective social services, counseling and advocacy through responsive, innovative programs.

Founded in 1979, with a staff of two part-time employees, Jewish Family Services served 100 clients in northern Middlesex County during its first year. Over the years, the Agency has grown in response to community needs. Major program services include: services for senior adults; individual, group, and family counseling; legal, educational and social service assistance for immigrants and refugees; a wide range of educational, vocational, career,  and training services for employers and job seekers; adoption services; and an essential needs program to assist families in crisis.   In 2006, Jewish Family Services merged with Jewish Family Service of Southern Middlesex County to create a county-wide Agency to better serve the community. The agency provides service to all members of the community regardless of religious affiliation.

Jewish Family Services has an active Board of Trustees which provides Agency governance and leadership.  Volunteers support program activities to allow the Agency to increase services within the county.

Jewish Family Services has a long tradition of serving the community.  Its history is one of change, flexibility, and growth, reflecting a single goal – to bring help to those members of the community in need.  Jewish Family Services is proud of its past and enthusiastic about its future.
