Testimonials

As a daughter residing halfway across the country, it gives me great peace of mind to know that my elderly father has a friend stopping in to see him every now and then.  My father definitely appreciates the conversation and friendly face as he is confined to his room and his own thoughts most of the time. JFS has done a great job of matching my father up with a volunteer that has similar interests and is a great conversationalist. Our entire family is very thankful for volunteers that so freely give their time to make someone's life that much more enjoyable.
