Services for Older Adults
COVID-19 Notice: Most services are currently virtual or over the phone due to the pandemic. Kosher Home Delivered Meals is operating with safety modifications in mind.
Jewish Family Service offers the availability of a Community Chaplain for those who are interested in addressing issues of a spiritual nature—or adding a spiritual component to services they are already receiving at the agency.
JFS acts as a legal guardian for people who can no longer make informed decisions and have no family members available to take over affairs on their behalf. Once we become the legal guardian for an individual, we are committed to acting just as a concerned family member would—for the rest of the individual’s life. We provide case management; advising on controversial issues, turning to an ethics committee as necessary; monitor medical, housing, psychological, and legal needs; oversee estate issues, and provide an annual accounting to the probate court. This service is available on a limited basis during COVID-19.
Holocaust Survivor Assistance
We are able to provide case management, counseling, assistance with home care, limited financial assistance, and help with compensation applications.
Jewish Family Service’s Indigent Burial Program ensures that indigent members of the Dallas area Jewish community will be able to have a Jewish funeral. The term “indigent” refers to individuals with no income or extremely low income.

Kosher Home Delivered Meals is funded in part by the Dallas Area of Aging, Dallas County, and Texas Department of Agriculture. Our KHDM Program is also a proud member of Meals on Wheels America
