Jewish Family Services of Vancouver Island is a not-for-profit, social services agency run entirely by volunteers from every part of the Jewish Community. We are here to help to people of every age, social and economic background.

We support and promote, in the context of Jewish values, the healthy development of individuals, families and communities on Vancouver Island through caring, protection, peer support, advocacy and education.

We provide referral services for a wide range of life issues, including: marital dilemmas, conflicts between parents and children, workplace and employment issues, and illness or disability.

At present, we do not provide professional counselling services; however when we learn that someone is in need of these services we will help them connect with other agencies and professionals.



We are honoured to manage Claims Conference grants to assist Holocaust survivors in our community. For information on the Claims Conference, go to or click the image below
