JFS is here to support you after any significant loss in your life. Whether a death, a divorce, a significant job change, or the impact of a community tragedy such as a hurricane, JFS Houston offers a wide range of counseling specializing in bereavement support. JFS also offers in home visitation after a tragedy such as death by suicide, overdose or other mental health fatality.   We authored a bereavement guide addressing the complex needs of family, friends and colleagues who have lost someone to death by suicide or overdose.

Our bereavement materials recognize the significance and wisdom of the Jewish cycle of mourning rituals and meet with those who are grieving over the course of the first Jewish year after a loss when such support is needed or requested.  We understand that everyone walks a unique grieving path and we are here to soften that path with you.
