Making Hope Happen
At JEVS Human Services, we believe in giving people possibilities—opportunities to be self-sufficient and satisfied. Each year we touch nearly 25,000 lives, focusing on individuals with physical, developmental, and emotional challenges as well as those facing adverse socio-economic conditions including unemployment and underemployment.
It’s our mission to Make Hope Happen today while creating meaningful change for tomorrow. JEVS stakeholders work to shape and influence public policy to better serve the populations who need us most. Acting in collaboration with our advocacy partners, JEVS works to create sustainable solutions to the underlying issues facing the people we serve.

Commitment to Principles
Since our inception, JEVS Human Services has been committed to the Jewish principles of Tzedakah and Tikkun Olam. Tzedakah refers to the religious obligation to ‘do what is right and just’ and is also the Hebrew word for ‘charity.’ Tikkun Olam is also a Hebrew phase for ‘repairing the world.’

- making a job seeker more employable
- maximizing someone’s independence
- improving an individual’s health and well being
