We welcome you to attend Counseling’s ongoing,
drop-in support groups:

Community Connection

Join JFCS for weekly conversations on Zoom: It is a space for anyone in the community to connect with others and share what’s on their mind.

Grief Connection

Grief affects every part of our lives and can be a lonely road to travel. Join us for our monthly grief-processing group for adults. In our virtual sessions, we will have the opportunity to share our own experiences with grief, connect with others, and learn strategies for moving through loss. Click here to learn more.

Cancer Support Group

Community is important. Cancer is lonely. Jewish Family & Child Service has combined these two truths to create this support group open to anyone with a cancer diagnosis. Click here to learn more.

Disability Mental Health Spotlight

Join our Counseling and Disability Support Services programs for an ongoing series of mental health groups for members of the disabled community. We will be discussing strategies for coping with anxiety. 

All groups meet on Zoom.
Zoom links provided at link below.

Do you also have a story to share?

JFCS is celebrating its 75th year and we’re seeking stories about how we’ve helped you, a friend, or loved one over the years. If you’d like to participate, please email us. Or click here to learn more.


9-8-8. That’s all you have to remember to call The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Previously a 10-digit code, the 988 Suicide Prevention & Crisis Lifeline now is only three digits. If you or a loved one is experiencing a mental or behavioral health crisis, please do not hesitate to call the Lifeline; it is available 24/7, links to the Veterans Crisis Line, and is here for you without shame or judgment.

Help Ukrainian refugees

JFCS is following the ongoing war in Ukraine and news about Ukrainian refugees entering the United States, including those coming to settle here, in greater Portland. Welcome Circles are one key way you can help. HIAS provides comprehensive information about how to start or join a Welcome Circle.
