JFS Provides Adoption Services to All
JFS offers adoption services to all prospective parents, regardless of age, gender, disability, religion, political belief, and family status. We firmly believe great parents come from all walks of life, and all children deserve a permanent, loving home.
Russian Resettlement Project Update
From 1989 to 1997, JFS helped resettle over 800 Jewish refugees from the Former Soviet Union (FSU) to Richmond. Now, nearly 25 years later, JFS and students from the University of Richmond Hillel are working together to tell the compelling stories of these New Americans and their families. Stay tuned for further details as we work to complete a documentary film and museum display in late 2014. This project is financially supported in part by the Genesis Fund of Richmond Jewish Foundation. Read more about this project here.
