We LOVE our Volunteers!VolunteersWebGraphic

Each year thousands of Jewish Family Service volunteers of all ages make a world of difference for our clients, our agency and the Dallas community. Their dedication and commitment make it possible to provide our specialized wrap-around care to those in need. It’s a wonderful feeling to help others and we want to help you make that connection to communal service whether through Jewish Family Service or through one of our partners in Mitzvah Central.
