Women's Center

Support for women reentering the workforce

The JFS Women’s Center helps displaced homemakers, individuals who are working to become economically self-sufficient after the loss of a partner through divorce, separation or death, or after a partner becomes disabled. Many displaced homemakers struggle to enter or re-enter the workforce; JFS provides individualized coaching to help women set personal goals, identify community resources, and advance professionally.

The JFS Women’s Center offers:

  • Career services
  • One-on-one coaching sessions
  • Goal setting and follow-up
  • Referrals to financial, legal, educational, and other services
  • Tuition assistance for eligible participants for short-term career training
  • Support groups and referrals to mental health services
  • Personal development workshops and networking opportunities 
  • Ongoing case management 

For more information on these or other services, contact JFS today.

The program is funded by a grant from the Division of Women NJ Department Children and Families. The Women’s Center is a member of the Displaced Homemaker Network of New Jersey, Inc.

“You’re just beyond kind!!! I just received your surprise gift in the mail and I have no words to describe how grateful I feel to have such supportive people in my life and to be part of Women’s Center. I did not expect this at all since you’ve already done enough for me and my daughter. Whatever I have achieved would not have been possible without your support. I am left speechless at the selfless generosity.”
– Puja K, Women’s Center member
