“You only have limited time and resources available outside of your work, family and friends. You want your volunteer work to make an impact. By volunteering at JEVS I feel that my time and resources are helping those most in need to better their lives for generations to come. When you volunteer at JEVS, you feel you are making a difference and having fun doing it.”

— Dustin Seidman, JEVS Board of Directors, Co-Chair JEVS Community Partners

JEVS Human Services touches people from all walks of life–facing a variety of challenges and opportunities–in communities across the city and suburbs. If you would like to share your time and talents by engaging in community service that will truly make a difference, JEVS is the place to go!

On Tuesday, September 20, 2016, we kicked off our volunteer program with our “What is JEVS” event. Eighty individuals came together to learn about ways in which they can give back and help to “make hope happen” for 35,000+ individuals in need each year.
