Our Impact

How We Make a Difference

Goodman JFS is dedicated to serving the Broward County community by empowering individuals and protecting the vulnerable. Read the many ways our innovative social services have impacted lives.

On a monthly basis, the Dorit & Ben J. Genet Cupboard calls the daughter of a client to obtain her mother’s grocery needs. After the client received her delivery, her daughter, who lives in New Jersey, called to thank us. She said, “without the DBJG Cupboard, her mother would have nothing and because she lives so far away she is beyond grateful for our work.”

A 78-year-old client contacted Goodman JFS in tears because his electricity was disconnected just after being released from the hospital. Other agencies in the community that he contacted required that he come into their locations but that was difficult because he is in a wheelchair, living alone, with no immediate means of transportation. Imagine food spoiling in the fridge, medication unable to be cooled and no AC. The situation could have easily gone from bad to worse.

Because GJFS is a community partner with FPL, our care manager contacted them immediately and was able to get the electricity restored within one hour!
