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.

Our Priorities

In late 2020, the JFSC Board and key staff members conducted a series of planning sessions to develop the 2021/22 – 2023/24 Strategic Plan.

The resulting Strategic Plan is first and foremost designed to strengthen and grow the Agency to best meet the needs of our clients in the upcoming years. The followin Strategic Priorities were identified:

Service Excellence

We provide our clients with top quality programs and services and strive for superior client satisfaction.

Organizational Sustainability

We work towards a long-term sustainable future by growing our financial resources, building our donor support base and enhancing staff and volunteer satisfaction.

Organizational Presence

We increase the visibility of the Agency, our programs and services, and expand our target audiences.

Strategic Collaboration

We continue to identify and cultivate trusted relationships and collaborations to optimize outcomes for clients and communities.


On April 1, 2020, CARF International announced that JFSC has been accredited for a period of three years for its programs and services. This is the first accreditation that the international accrediting body, CARF, has given to JFSC.

This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be given to an organization and shows the organization’s substantial conformance to the CARF standards. An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation has put itself through a rigorous peer review process. It has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit its commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality.

CARF is an independent, nonprofit accrediting body whose mission is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process and continuous improvement services that center on enhancing the lives of the persons served. Founded in 1966 as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, and now known as CARF International, the accrediting body establishes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services. For more information about the accreditation process, please visit the CARF Canada website.
