Who We Serve
N, an 83 year old man recently lost his lifelong partner. Struck with grief, and alienated from his family, N had no one to turn to. JFS tracked him down on the coldest day of the winter. He was found walking alone on Main Street crying hysterically. We brought him into a nearby restaurant where we bought him a hot meal, his first in two days. JFS stayed with him, reconnected him with a JFS volunteer he had lost contact with and we now remain in touch with him on a weekly basis should he want more services.
