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.
During this month, we rededicate ourselves to breaking the cycle of violence. By providing young people with education about healthy relationships, and by changing attitudes that support violence, we recognize that domestic violence can be prevented. We must build the capacity of our victim service providers to reach and serve those in need. Together, we must ensure that, no victim of domestic violence ever struggles alone.

Member agency executives and senior staff will convene for NJHSA's first formal gathering in Phoenix, at the end of October, to network, discuss key topics facing the Network and its member agencies, and create a bridge to the 2018 Launch Conference.
