Our History

JFS was created in 1979 as the first agency of the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County. Counseling services were initially offered by a part time social worker from a small storefront office on Federal Highway in Boca Raton. Eventually, offices moved to Clint Moore Road before relocating to the current campus in 1991.
