JFSC is an accredited, non denominational and inclusive social service agency serving the Calgary Community.
The Staff, Volunteers and Board of Directors believe that it is not who we provide service to, but how we provide that service that matters. Our services and programs are offered in the spirit of Jewish tradition and our values of social justice, compassion, and a commitment to leaving the world a better place.
Individuals and families accessing JFSC programs receive individualized support that is unique to their situation and we are accessible to people of all faith and cultures.
In January 2019, the Board of Directors, with input from agency staff members, completed a 3 year strategic plan and identified five goals for 2019 – 2021 that focus on:
- Service Excellence
- Financial Optimization
- Relationships and Collaboration
- Contribution of People
- Operational Excellence
On March, 2016 JFSC has been awarded a four year accreditation by the Canadian Centre for Accreditation (CCA). The hard work, professionalism, and dedication of our staff and Board of Directors are clearly reflected in this significant achievement.
Accreditation is a process that provides assurance from a respected third-party that the accredited organization meets commonly accepted standards for good governance, management, and excellence in service provision. It is one way that we demonstrate to our clients and funders that we are operating responsibly and providing responsive and quality services.
Being CCA Accredited allows us to demonstrate our accomplishments at not only an operational level but also in our business management and community governance. With increasing pressure for public accountability, participation in the accreditation process promotes a quality and safety culture across the organization.
