Through the Tobis and Shalom Funds and donations from individuals, we are able to provide financial assistance to our community members most in need. Medications, environmental modifications, care meals, and other medical costs are critical expenses that often go uncovered. We would like to thank all who help us provide assistance to our families.

Senior Adult Services

The overall mission of Senior Adult Services is to empower seniors to maintain independence with a dignified quality of life in their own home for as long as possible. JFS provides case management services and advocates to attain and access legal, psychiatric, and medical services for those in need. We hold monthly luncheons and outings around Central Iowa, in addition to providing routine transportation for those living independently. If you or someone you know would like to access our senior adult services, please contact Jody at jody@dmjfed.org or 515.419.5033.
