The Family Center

While no one family member is affected in the same way by an adjustment in family structure or increase in conflict, it is incorrect to assume that a toddler is more or less affected by familial changes than their older sibling or a parent. It is not just children or their parents who are affected by separation, divorce, or other familial alteration – it is whole families.

As couples or parents opt to discontinue their relationship, they and their child(ren) experience a myriad of emotions. Each may feel as if they have to take sides. Each may feel powerless to determine the direction of their future. They may believe they are the problem and are responsible for the pain felt by the whole family. Without a doubt, they are grieving.

Jewish Family Services (JFS) believes that these periods of transition and discomfort do not have to cause irreparable damage and despair. It can and should be a time when families come together to support and assist each other in order to reduce the negative consequences experienced by any family member affected by the current/future change(s).

Our goal

Our goal is to help support families through these difficult periods of dramatic change and assist them in minimizing the negative impact that changing familial circumstances has the potential to cause.

We offer a variety of programs designed to help families through these transitions. For more information on any of these services, please call 414-225-1333.
