PLEASE BECOME A FRIEND TODAY.
One after another, Tampa Jewish Family Services’ clients are sharing their Stories of Strength. Each one has something in common – a Friend who can help. The annual Friends’ Campaign enables TJFS to help more than 13,000 people each year throughout the Tampa area.

Helping people – of all faiths –  is the heart of our mission. We need your help to continue strengthening the lives of individuals and families like Mindy, Leah and Mathew, and Luis (pictured above).

Individuals and  families place their trust in Tampa Jewish Family Services. Mindy found the strength to leave an abusive home life. Luis struggled with making ends meet while caring for his parents, and Leah and Mathew grappled with homelessness. Unforeseen life-changing circumstances forced these people to seek help from a Friend – friends like you and Tampa Jewish Family Services.
WE ARE HERE TO HELP.

Each Story of Strength is an example of how Tampa Jewish Family Services works to help those in need. Names have been changed to protect client confidentiality. Tampa Jewish Family Services’ mission is to strengthen individuals and families of all faiths throughout the Tampa area.
