We’re thrilled to announce and celebrate the continuing growth of our Campus community by welcoming the Jewish Family Service of Greater Harrisburg to the Alexander Grass Campus for Jewish life.

Since 1964, Jewish Family Service (JFS) has helped individuals and families in the Greater Harrisburg area reach their full potential and achieve health, wholeness and stability. According to JFS leaders, the move to the Grass Campus couldn’t come at a more pivotal time for the agency, which has experienced rapid growth in recent years, bursting at the seams for space to meet the growing needs of community members across the 10 counties that it serves.

“Every single program has added staff (in recent years),” says Rachel Kuhr, Chief Program Officer, who has worked with JFS for more than 20 years.

The new offices in Lehrman Hall provide four stories of collaborative meeting and working spaces, specialized therapy rooms, resource libraries, and crucially, an expanded Libby Urie Food Pantry that has quickly grown from serving 30 to 150 people each month.

JFS is the fourth organization to make the move to the Grass Campus full-time following The Silver Academy, Jewish Federation of Greater Harrisburg, and the Brenner Family Early Learning Center.

Keep an eye out for information about more organizations, programs, and services arriving on the Grass Campus in the coming weeks and months. Subscribe to Grass Campus news or follow on social media (Facebook and Instagram) to stay up to date.
