INVEST IN YOUR JEWISH FAMILY SERVICE,
BECOME A FRIEND OF OUR FAMILY!
"Last year alone Jewish Family Service served
over 3,600 families and individuals, helping peo-
ple cope with all kinds of personal and family
problems," said George Nyman, J.F.S. Board
Chairman of the
1992 Friends of
the Family cam-
they were not
turned away by the
agency due to lack
of funding. The
agency gets calls
daily for requests
tance, food and
shelter from the
homeless, marital counseling, concrete services
such as Meals-On-Wheels, In-Home Respite Care
and other programs.
During 1991, Jewish Family Service embarked
on the first "Friends of the Family" solicitation
drive to benefit programs affected by budget cuts.
This first drive raised close to $17,000. The
money has been used to supplement programs
such as Financial Assistance, Family Violence
Prevention, Group Apartments for the Elderly
Program, and others.

Unfortunately, fewer peo-

Janice Shatzman, Jewish
Family Service President.
During this busy time of
the Jewish Holidays with
your family, please think of
the many members of our
Jewish Community who
will suffer from poverty, violence and neglect. By
becoming a "friend", you will help to ensure that
Jewish Family Service will continue to meet the
needs of our community.

THREE RETIREES - NINE DECADES OF DEDICATED SERVICE
During the past six months, three of the agency's most senior employees retired with
a total of almost ninety years of dedicated service to the agency and the community.
Marilyn Wineman, social worker first joined JFS in September 1965 and served as a
case worker in the Child Placement Department. Since that time she served as a social
worker in a variety of programs, taking upon herself the responsibilities of Staff
Directors. Later she decided to join the agency staff. She initially was employed in
1951 as an Intake Aide. Shortly thereafter she left the agency only to return in 1967 to
head the volunteer program. She then worked in a number of positions throughout the
agency finally finding her "true calling" as the Program Manager for the Group
Apartments for the Elderly Program, a residential program for the frail elderly. Zena
made the program what it is today through her determination, skill and dedication to
the program, its residents and staff.
The staff and Board wish them each a full and rewarding retirement. Each one in her
own unique way has left an indelible mark on the agency and has helped to make us
what we are today. Yosher Koach!

her pleasant disposition and her skill as a sound practitioner will be greatly missed.
Helen Samberg joined Jewish Family Service in April 1962 and was the Intake
Worker, the first professional in the agency with whom the majority of our clients have
contact. She served in this position throughout her working career in the agency. In
addition, she served as the Union Steward and chaired the staff Social Committee. In
true form, she is creating a JFS Alumni Association for retired employees of the
agency. Helen became a legend in her own right at JFS for her compassion, her intellect
and her unwavering support of the agency and its mission.
Zena Baum started her association with the agency as a member of the Board of
