Rockland Jewish Family Service is celebrating 30 years of service to the Rockland County community this month. At the 2017 gala, RJFS recognized its past leadership and founders along with outstanding volunteers. Trudy Album received the Woman of Valor award; Linda and Harvey Berk were honored as Pillars of the Community; and Lisa Green, President of the Jewish Federation and Foundation received the Community Leadership Award.
Rockland Jewish Family Service is a not-for-profit, non-sectarian, mental health and social service agency. For many years the agency has offered professional counseling for individuals, families, couples and groups; programs specifically designed to meet the needs of individuals on the Autism Spectrum; Older Adult services; community programs for adults with developmental disabilities; a kosher food pantry and other social services for families in need.
The agency is dedicated to identifying unmet needs in the community and develops new programs to meet the needs of families in Rockland County. Some of our newest programs include home based counseling for frail seniors and homebound adults; specialized services for families living with Alzheimer’s disease; a comprehensive Eating Disorder program and programming for Holocaust survivors.
Also recognized at the 2017 gala were our professional staff and the many dedicated volunteers without whom these programs and services would be possible.
