An organization cannot reach its vision and goals without the right people. Just as clients, programs, and equipment are essential for success, so are employees. Without the right employees, even a well-equipped organization will flounder. At JFS, we recognize that our employees are our greatest asset.

Every year JFS benefits nearly 24,000 people of all faiths, races, ages, incomes and abilities.

JFS is very proud of our positive work culture, as well as our recognition as a “best place to work in Denver.” Our 170 employees enjoy competitive salaries and benefits, including a generous leave program. JFS is a nonsectarian, nonprofit, and inclusive organization.
