JEWISH FAMILY & Children’s Service of Greater Mercer County (JFCS) is a non-profit, comprehensive social service agency that focuses on help, hope, and healing in the Greater Mercer region. The agency serves all ages, backgrounds, and faiths with mental health counseling, senior services, and a range of food distribution programs.
The JFCS counseling department accepts clients with private insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, and no insurance. The agency also is one of the few in Mercer County which provides services in Spanish.
Through the use of technology and adapted procedures, all JFCS services have continued during the pandemic shutdown.
The counseling department is accepting new clients and completes intakes and initial assessments via phone and video calls. The agency also offers consultations with a psychiatrist.
JFCS expanded mental health services — through the funding support of Princeton Area Community Foundation — to include free weekly webinars and drop-in hours by phone. Drop-in hours are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, 10 a.m.-noon, and Tuesday and Thursday, 5-7 p.m. Callers can reach a counselor at 609-987-8100 and dial 0 to be connected.
