Aging with Dignity Services

Grief Support Group

Lisa Warner, LCSW, Director of Clinical and Social Services at JFS, is now facilitating a Grief Support Group at JFS on two Sundays each month.

The group is for adults who are grieving the loss of parents,

children, a spouse or friends.  It is a safe environment to talk

about grief and obtain support and feedback.

This group meets 2 times a month on the 2nd. and 4th Sundays from 10:30am to noon at the JFS offices.

​If you are interested, please contact Lisa at (408) 357-7453, or lisaw@jfssv.org.

A Client Story:

Dear Avital,
Thank you so much for the wonderful Passover package of holiday foods.  I really appreciate this gift, plus those given to me for Hannukah and Purim.   I haven't tasted Kichel in about 60 years, so this particular item was a special treat.

I've enjoyed meeting with the Jewish Family Service volunteers who delivered the food. 

My deep thanks to you and to them.

- Mrs. A.W.
