The Leading Voice for Jewish Human Service Organizations


The Network is the membership association for 140+ non-profit organizations in the United States, Canada and Israel who provide a full range of human services for members of the Jewish community and beyond.   

The Network strives to be the leading voice for Jewish human service organizations – the go-to resource for best practices, research, innovation and partnerships; strengthening agencies so that they can better serve their communities and the people who need their help.  

The Network strengthens and supports our member agencies and the people they serve through a wide range of human services including career and employment, youth and family, healthcare, immigrant and refugee, disability, counseling and mental health, seniors and Holocaust survivors and caregiver support.  

November - National Adoption Awareness Month

National Adoption Month is an initiative of the Children's Bureau with a goal to increase national awareness and bring attention to the need for permanent families for children and youth in the U.S. foster care system. For the 2017 National Adoption Month initiative, the theme "Teens Need Families, No Matter What," highlights the importance of identifying well-prepared and committed families for the thousands of teenagers in foster care. Many of these young people are less likely to be adopted, often because of their age, and will too often age out of the system without a stable support system. Securing lifelong connections for these teens, legally and emotionally, is an urgent need and critical component of their future achievement and overall well-being. Learn more here.
