The Jewish Relief Agency serves over 6,400 diverse low-income individuals across Greater Philadelphia by relieving hunger, improving lives, and strengthening our community. JRA works to alleviate the everyday burdens of poverty for 3,800 food-insecure households through our Monthly Food Distributions. Over the years, JRA has established additional programs to meet community members at their point of need. Our array of supportive services, which include the Family Friendly Food Initiative, Everyday Essentials program, Crisis Fund, and Friendly Phone Calls, alleviate some of the stressors felt by the families we serve.
As the impact of COVID-19 grows, it is critical for JRA to both sustain and increase the assistance we are providing to the community, including those most vulnerable to this public health crisis. Due to the increased need for our services JRA is seeking a part-time social worker (20-25 hours per week) to join the frontline staff of the agency. We are looking to hire a compassionate individual who can thrive in a fast-paced environment. The ideal candidate should be comfortable with building trust, maintaining professional boundaries, providing referrals, and communicating with a diverse group of clients and community organizations. We are ideally seeking an applicant with experience in client outreach, client in-take and assessment, and program implementation.
MSW required – LSW preferred
