COVID-19 UPDATE:

Feeling isolated, stressed, or just need to talk through what is going on around you? Finding it hard for your seniors to grocery shop safely?

JFS of Greenwich is here for you!

Senior shopping services:

JFS has expanded its signature Supermarketing For Seniors program, to increase the number of clients we serve, and to field additional shoppers to help. To get more information or to register, please call 203-622-1881, or simply complete the online form on our webpage by clicking here.

Online tele-health therapy sessions:

“Sheltering in place” and “social distancing” can generate feelings of loneliness or anxiety. Talking to an experienced and compassionate therapist can help you deal with these feelings JFS can help!

Click here to fill out our convenient online form for Tele-health Services. One of our licensed therapists will reach out and set up a time to talk. No stress, no barriers. Real help at a time when we are all struggling to manage the current changes in our daily lives. And JFS of Greenwich accepts all major insurance plans!

Stay tuned for more updates about JFS online support groups coming soon! While our physical office is closed, we are all working remotely to ensure your needs are met during this challenging time. Please continue to call and email the staff at JFS. We are actively accepting new clients and will be happy to direct you to our online forms. Our therapists are not skipping a beat and set up with tele-therapy services at your regularly scheduled meeting time. And our shoppers are shopping and delivering with typical JFS caring.

While things may be a little different for the next few weeks, there will be no difference in the care and compassion you have come to expect from those of us at JFS of Greenwich!

Stay calm, stay healthy, and do not hesitate to contact us! JFS of Greenwich is and always will be, here for you!
