Impacting Your Community Through a JFS Career

In the social service world, there is much talk about the ‘continuum of care’–providing integrated services to support a single person throughout their lives.

For over 40 years JFS has been building and integrating essential support services for the young and the young at heart within Ottawa across three basic human needs and has made an incredible impact in building a stronger, more diverse community.  

These three support areas may seem separate, but they are, in fact, deeply connected.  JFS nourishes our clients of all ages by offering services and programs that touch on these three pillars.  If you are committed to ‘tikkun olam’, the Jewish concept of healing the world, then we want to hear from you.  See below for current team openings (click on each for a full description).
