We cannot congratulate our friends at Jewish Family Service (JFS) enough on this monumental award!
California State Senator Marty Block has named Jewish Family Service of San Diego (JFS) “Nonprofit of the Year” for the 39th district, and will honor the agency at the first inaugural California Nonprofits Day on Wednesday, June 22 in Sacramento at the State Capitol.
“Nonprofit organizations are vitally important to the economy and well-being of California. But too often nonprofits are ‘hidden in plain sight.’ We are thrilled that the State Assembly has passed a resolution putting the spotlight on nonprofits as an economic power that uses that power for the common good. We congratulate all of the award recipients on being honored for the great work they do every day to make California a better place,” said Jan Masaoka, CEO of California Association of Nonprofits (CalNonprofits), a statewide alliance of over 10,000 organizations, representing and promoting California’s growing nonprofit sector and working to bring the full power of nonprofits to strengthening communities.
“It is a tremendous honor to receive this recognition from Senator Block and the State Assembly on California Nonprofits Day,” said Michael Hopkins, JFS CEO. “Families come to JFS looking for a way to move forward. We are proud to be a part of a strong nonprofit network in San Diego working to make a meaningful, measurable, and sustainable difference in the lives of our clients and the community we all share.”
The work JFS does in California is simply amazing. Countless lives have been helped and made better through their existence and we are thrilled to work alongside them in creating a better world for those in need.
