Southfield’s JVS Human Services works to help metro Detroit residents maximize their potential by providing counseling, training, and support services for people with disabilities, job seekers, seniors, and others in need. The organization’s approach is rooted in Jewish values and a belief that the best way to help people is to make it possible to help themselves. It has recently partnered with Amazon to employ individuals with disabilities at local fulfillment and sort centers. It also offers computer training, financial education, and homebuyer and homeowner education. JVS was founded in 1941 in Detroit as Jewish Vocational Service after beginning as a women’s employment office in 1926. It soon expanded to help job applicants who faced challenges to finding work, including people with disabilities, holocaust survivors, discharged and disabled World War II veterans, and refugees fleeing Europe. Today, it employs more than 300 people at its four offices in metro Detroit. The organization is conducting its virtual Trade Secrets event Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. to raise money for its Women to Work program. Guests will come together via Zoom to hear keynote speaker author Suzy Farbman and receive a personalized box of food, wine, party favors, and the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets.
