More Than a JCFS Gala: A Community of Caring

March 1, 2018

Every year, hundreds of Jewish individuals need support in managing a mental health or addiction issue. Mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, and friends reach out with the hope of finding assistance, guidance, and care for themselves or a loved one.


Jewish Child and Family Service is an open door for the help they need. Our clients are welcomed and supported with compassion and therapeutic excellence.


Mental health and well-being are at the very heart of JCFS. Our focus on mental health is the thread that runs through everything we do. Every client we meet. Every family we embrace. Every solution we seek.


Through our Community of Caring Gala, we hope to raise the funds needed to keep JCFS on the leading edge of mental health and addiction recovery care. Your generous donation will help JCFS enhance our services to the community and advance best practice by:

• Hiring additional specialized staff;

• Expanding therapeutic and peer support groups and programs;

• Developing and offering new and innovative recovery programs and services;

• Growing community capacity for awareness, caring and support.


The Community of Caring Gala takes place on Thursday, May 10th, 2018 at the RBC Convention Centre. It is a celebration of the warm embrace of community and our capacity to care. The Maccabeats, a Jewish acapella group from New York, made famous by their energetic and wildly popular YouTube videos, will give an intimate performance of their most-loved hits.


The Gala is an essential piece of JCFS’s ability to grow our mental health and addiction recovery services and programs. The funds raised will help ensure that we are able to respond to the needs of tomorrow.
