Jewish Social Service Agency
Serving Maryland, DC and Northern Virginia



Do you have a child struggling with school, a friend lost in depression, or a niece with special needs who is seeking independence? Perhaps your elderly mother is finding it harder to live on her own or a colleague is facing an end-of-life crisis.  Is your school or synagogue seeking an expert speaker or do you need continuing education credits?

Think JSSA – we’re here to help. For more than 120 years, JSSA has been reaching out and helping individuals and families in Maryland, Northern Virginia and DC regardless of religious or ethnic background or ability to pay.  We make a lasting difference in the lives of tens of thousands of people each year through a wide range of counseling, special needs services, educational and professional programs, in-home support, nursing care, volunteer assistance and social services.

From the youngest child to the most fragile senior – from individuals to entire families – our caring and experienced professionals provide tailored services and programs to meet every need.
