Jewish Collaborative Services was established in 2018 through the union of two of Rhode Island’s premier social services agencies: Jewish Family Service of RI (JFSRI) and Jewish Seniors Agency of RI (JSARI). Both agencies were grounded in the values of compassion, humanity and inclusiveness, serving all in need.

JCS is a comprehensive, solution-oriented, full-spectrum service organization, offering aging and wellness programs, assisted living, support for caregivers, affordable housing for seniors and the mobility impaired, counseling services for children and adults, food and nutrition programs, adoption services and more. In 2021, JCS touched the lives of 5,187 individuals through its various programs and services.  


Although the organization’s work is guided by Jewish values, it serves those of all backgrounds and religious affiliations. JCS has an operating budget of approximately $10M, an endowment of $18M and is governed by a 21-member Board of Directors and administered by 112 staff. JCS has locations in Providence and Warwick, Rhode Island.


JCS now seeks a President and CEO who will continue to move the organization forward to meet emerging needs in the community.  The ideal leader will have a deep passion for, commitment to and knowledge of social services and/or assisted living or affordable housing.
