Supporting Families & Seniors. Alleviating Hunger. Improving Mental Health.


Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2021 JFS Gala, The Masks We Wear, celebrating our 150th anniversary. Your support, along with the incredible, behind-the-scenes work of our fabulous planning committee, made for a truly special night that we won’t soon forget.

Your contributions to JFS support a multitude of programs that enhance the emotional and physical well-being of people throughout the St. Louis region. Because of you, thousands in our community will go to bed with full bellies each night, knowing they have a place to turn to in times of need. Because of you, we can provide hours of additional counseling to youth and their families, and help reduce the waiting lists for both children in need of diagnostic testing and seniors in need of services to remain safe and independent in their homes.

Because of you, our families, friends and neighbors will feel safe to remove their masks and seek the help they need – and we will continue to hear messages of hope and gratitude from those whose lives you have helped to change:

“Thanks to JFS, I have not had to walk this journey alone. My journey has become “our” journey. This is my safe place. This is my hope. Thank you for being there for me.”

We thank YOU for celebrating with us and supporting our mission to make the world a better place by helping people navigate and meet life’s challenges each and every day – for 150 years and counting.
