Our professional staff is multilingual and has helped thousands who have immigrated to the Bay Area to acculturate and start new lives. We look forward to helping you.

JFCS is the premier Bay Area agency providing Russian-language services for émigrés. Our staff also speaks English and Hebrew, and we offer services in other languages as needed. We are nationally recognized for excellence in our programs, offering legal services, citizenship classes, counseling, loans and grants, and much more.

We have helped not only immigrants from the former Soviet Union to start new lives in California, but many others as well, including refugees and immigrants from 30 different countries.

Emigres from the Ukraine, Lida and her children, Natasha and Misha, participated in many programs at JFCS since coming to the U.S. in 1992. Today, they are all dedicated to “giving back” to the local and global community.
