Services to Public Assistance Recipients

  The JVS network is guided by a common mission set forth by the medieval Jewish philosopher, Moses Maimonides: the greatest charity lies in helping people to become self-sufficient. By entering into partnerships with individuals in need, teaching job skills and self-reliance, we eliminate the necessity for future aid.

The services and resources provided by the JVS network to help welfare recipients transition from welfare to work range from job readiness and skills training and certification to support and retention services. These services are provided through a national welfare to work initiative administered by IAJVS, as well as by affiliate agencies that operate programs in their local communities.
