BASIC NEEDS

Affordable Housing

Brighton Food Cupboard

The Brighton Food Cupboard (BFC) is committed to the prevention and reduction of hunger and food insecurity for individuals and families living in Brighton and surrounding communities. Each client interacts with our social worker and receives case management services.

Brighton Your Wardrobe

Brighton Your Wardrobe (BYW) offers free clothing to the children, individuals, and families living in or attending the Brighton School District who are in need.

Financial Assistance

If you are facing an inability to cover your basic needs, Jewish Family Services (JFS) can help. JFS is here to advocate for those most vulnerable in our community.

Groceries-to-Go

In an effort to connect volunteers who can bring groceries and supplies to those in high-risk demographics, Jewish Family Services (JFS) has implemented a Groceries-to-Go program. Groceries-to-Go aims to connect volunteer shoppers with individuals who can afford their groceries but are currently unable to get to the store themselves.

Pencils and Paper

The Pencils & Paper program serves the educational and creative needs of children in the greater Rochester area by providing free school supplies to teachers in high poverty schools. Teachers can shop twice a year and receive an estimated $800 worth of school supplies at each shopping trip.
