Family Friends Project of JFSLA
Jewish Family Service of Los Angeles
12821 Victory Blvd.
The Family Friends Project of Jewish Family Service of Los Angeles is a unique, intergenerational, non-sectarian program that matches volunteers with children who have disabilities, chronic illnesses, or are at-risk. Volunteers visit weekly with children and their families at home, proving social and emotional support, respite, mentoring, advocacy, tutoring, and a wide range of assistance.
After an interview, 12-hour training, and fingerprint and reference check, volunteers are matched with a family. Matches are based on location, personal preferences, and interests. Ongoing support and supervision is provided monthly in a group setting. Opportunities are available in both Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley.
