Working Together to Serve People Better
Though we wish governments provided more funding for social services, especially during these difficult times, we do not expect government to solve societal problems. That’s why we’re thrilled that two key JVS funders have initiated long-range planning to better help the community.
The United Way of Greater Cincinnati this spring announced its Bold Goals, a plan designed to make sure residents are better educated, more financially stable and healthier. "Because the goals are so bold, the only way we're really going to be able to achieve them is by all working together," says United Way Chair Valarie Sheppard.
Likewise, the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati has been seeking broad input on a plan that would lead toward a more vibrant Jewish community, one that’s envied across the nation. It’s called Cincinnati 2020. Andy Berger, a Jewish Federation vice president, says “The plan is to have … all the organizations and synagogues in the community pull in the same direction and work to achieve this vision together.”
It is efforts like these that help JVS maintain its focus in challenging times, helping us empower individuals to enrich their lives.
How can you help?
All of us must continue to identify more innovative, efficient and effective ways to enhance the lives of those we serve.
