A tribute card is one of the most thoughtful ways to honor a person and is a
gift that enhances the lives of Jewish children, the elderly and families in need
of J.F.S. services.
Jewish Family Service has created a new and improved Tribute Card
Program. The new TRIBUTE ORDER BOOKS are now available.
With the new convenient system, the donor just fills in a coupon in the
Tribute Order Book and attaches a handy mailing label (supplied in the book) to
their return envelope. The donor mails the tribute order coupon with his/her
contribution to Jewish Family Service, and a Tribute Card is mailed immedi-
The minimum tribute donation remains only $5.00 per card.
The donor will receive an acknowledgement postcard for their records to
inform them that a tribute card was mailed.
You can receive a FREE tribute card when you order your FREE Tribute
Order Book. Just fill in the form below.
YES! Please send me a FREE tribute card with my Tribute Order Book.

Resettlement Service has relocated
its warehouse for donated furniture
and household goods to the Northland
Mall, two doors down from Kerby's
Koney Island, near Valet Parking.
The new location is more accessible
to the New American families who
pick up the donations and is more
convenient for the donors who can
now drop off their donations at the
street level location.
The new larger site made available
through the generosity of Northland
Mall, will allow for more storage of
furniture and household goods, which
are still very much in need.
"We are grateful to Kathy O'Mal-
ley and Nimrod Rosenthal of North-
land Mall Management who made the
arrangements, for making this space
available to us," said Bernard Stoll-
man, President of Resettlement
A large number of refugees from
the Soviet Union are expected to
resettle in the Detroit area over the
summer. We are concerned because
drop-off donations have decreased and
our supplies in the warehouse are
extremely low. We desperately need


The Jewish Family Service Board
has created an endowment fund to
honor Samuel Lerner, who retired as
Executive Director in April, 1989.
The fund provides scholarships for
Clinical Social Workers to attend
conferences and special training that
focuses on the treatment of children.
The fund allows the agency to
offer professional development
programs to staff in an era of tight
spending. The J.F.S. Board and
others generously contributed over
$22,000 to the Samuel Lerner
Endowment Fund, that generates an
income just under $2,000 a year.
This past year awards were made
to Ann Mintzer, M.S.W., Clinical
Supervisor, and to Clinical Social
Workers Barbara Eisenberg,
M.S.W., Judith Shewach- Steven-
son, M.S.W., and Lorraine Lerner,
M.S.W. to attend conferences. •

Sandra Hyman, Director of Reset-

group of dedicated volunteers under
the leadership of Herb Schein to get
this program off the ground.
"We would like to be open more
hours, now that we have the flexibil-
ity, but we need more volunteers to
work in the warehouse," said Hyman.

During the past year in office, I am
more convinced than ever of the com-
mitment and dedication of the Jewish
Family Service staff to provide the
highest quality counseling in the field.
Our mission is to serve the entire
Jewish community irrespective of
income level. Our quality counseling
and support services are among the
best of any provider in our area. In
fact, we are known nationally and
recognized for our group therapy
programs and our innovative treatment
approaches, as exemplified by our
Child Abuse Prevention Program.
The agency is accredited by the
Council of Accreditation and in many
ways far exceeds the requirements of
this organization.
We encourage and support our
workers to offer the highest standards
of practice. We provide post degree
training and supervision for staff to
further develop and enhance their skills
in individual, family and group
Our branch office in West Bloom-
field has surpassed our expectations
and is responding to the needs of the
Jewish population in the area.
I am proud to be associated with
Jewish Family Service and with the
many men and women who are commit-
ted to maintaining its outstanding
services and continued concern for the
welfare of our community.
