JFS Events

The following are reoccurring events at Jewish Family Service:

SNP Honors

The Special Needs Partnership at Jewish Family Service’s “SNP Honors” honors outstanding contributors and role models for advancing the special needs movement in our community.  The event also raises important dollars to support the Partnership’s work year round.  We are very grateful to all of the community partners who are highly deserving of our gratitude for making Dallas a more inclusive city and for all of their efforts that have so positively impacted so many individuals and families.

Annual Diaper Shower

Did you know that food stamps don’t cover diapers? Without diapers, a child can’t go to daycare and without daycare, a parent can’t go to work to support the family.  That’s why every year we ask the community to help us stock the JFS Food Pantry with diapers, pull-ups, and wipes for families in need. In 2017, you collected a record-breaking 118,165 diapers and 67,573 wipes!
