The Jewish Welfare Federa-
tion's 1986 Allied Jewish
Campaign is continuing its
most intensive period of solici-
tation. While the Campaign's
visibility is probably highest
at this time of year, its results
are deeply felt by thousands
in our local community all
year long.
to

Individuals
Campaign-funded agencies
for life-sustaining services.
The following profile shows
how Campaign contributions
translate into the opportunity
for a full life for many people.
In order to protect client con-
fidentiality, the profile subject
is actually a composite taken
from several different cases.
The Person. Jason X.

looks like a fairly typical guy
... interesting career, active
social life, a few hobbies.
Hard to believe that just six
years ago he was at a dead-
end, unable to hold a job or
function on a day-to-day
basis.
What turned his life
around? The bright, articu-
late 35-year-old will tell you
without hesitation that it was
the psychotherapy he took
part in at the Jewish Family
Service in Southfield. Jason
is, in fact, one of 2,500 who
are helped annually by the
various types of counseling
available at JFS.
"It's been a slow, painful
process," according to Jason.
"But through my sessions at
JFS I've gained tremendous
insight about myself and
learned to acknowledge my
emotional needs so that I can
get on with my life."
That life has been one of
incredible change. Jason has
put the past — marked by a
severely abusive childhood —
behind him. He has taken
college courses and holds a
responsible position with an
impressive salary — a far cry
from his former life in a re-
nted room, with only public
assistance to sustain him.
But his hard work isn't
done. Jason feels he needs to
continue improving his rela-
tionships with others. He is
currently taking part in
group therapy. He is pleased
to be paying the full cost of
his participation in the ses-
sions, something he was un-
able to do when he started
therapy.

And although he still has
some difficult moments ahead
of him, he knows he can cope.
"I feel JFS has given me the
chance to live like a mensch,"
says Jason. "For that, no
words are enough"

The Agency. Founded in
1925, the Jewish Family
Service is a member agency
of the Jewish Welfare Feder-
ation. The Allied Jewish
Campaign is one of the
sources of funding for the
agency.
Each year, people like
Jason receive confidential
service from the agency's
clinical social workers, all of
whom hold MSW degrees and
have specialized training.
Among the many services of-
fered are individual counsel-
ing, marital counseling,
group therapy, family and
child treatment, child place-
ment and adoption services.
JFS also provides a number
of support services through-
out the community, including
homemaker services, kosher
meals-on-wheels and emer-
gency financial aid for clients
with no other resources.
Through all its various pro-
, grams, JFS touches more
than 3,600 lives annually.
There is also a dedicated
core of volunteers at JFS who
act as "special friends" for
young people or "friendly vis-
itors" to the homebound el-
derly, as well as those who
work with the handicapped.
