JF&CS 2016 Annual Meeting; Celebrating Diversity & Inclusion

Thursday, May 19, 2016
6:30PM
JCC Pittsburgh, 5738 Forbes Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15217

Jewish Family & Children’s Service of Pittsburgh (JF&CS) will hold its Annual Meeting on Thursday, May 19, 2016 at the Jewish Community Center (JCC) in Squirrel Hill (5738 Forbes Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15217). This meeting is free and open to the public.

The theme of this year’s Annual Meeting focuses on how JF&CS builds on regional diversity and Inclusion through providing innovative social services to the community. Of particular interest this year is an accompanying multimedia exhibit at the American Jewish Museum at the JCC highlighting the lives of refugees. The exhibit, aimed at educating and inspiring our community about the newly-arriving refugees who call Pittsburgh home, will be open to Annual Meeting attendees. JF&CS staff will complement this exhibit by being available to answer questions and share commentary about refugee resettlement in our region. As part of JF&CS’s comprehensive offering of social services, the Refugee & Immigrant Services program helps federally sanctioned newcomers coming to the area with any number of resettlement issues, from securing housing to finding work.

From ensuring older adults remain connected to the community as they age, resettling newly-arriving refugees, helping young adults with mental health and autism diagnoses find and retain quality jobs, to offering meaningful volunteer opportunities for individuals with special needs, JF&CS's work ensures that people of all backgrounds and abilities share in the region' tremendous growth.

JF&CS leadership will also present the 2016 Dr. Howard A. Mermelstein Leadership Award to Dr. Matthew A. Keller, a board member since 2008. This annual award honors a JF&CS board member who has displayed outstanding leadership and commitment to the greater Pittsburgh community and dedication to the mission of JF&CS of supporting people through life’s changes and challenges.

Dr. Keller’s leadership roles at JF&CS include co-chairing the Squirrel Hill Community Food Pantry Relocation Committee and Endowment Campaign. He is the JF&CS lay leader representative on an upcoming community-wide disability inclusion certification project.

Currently he serves as the At-Large Officer on the JF&CS Board. He has been extremely active in the community with other organizations as well, often as an advocate for expanding inclusion policies and opportunities.

Though the JF&CS Annual Meeting is free and open to the community, reservations are requested. The Annual Meeting reception begins at 6:30 with an appetizer & dessert buffet, (kosher dietary laws observed) and live music featuring the band Machete Kisumontao (a Puerto Rican music band from Pittsburgh that blends Puerto Rican rhythms and Afro-Latino beats), and the evening’s program begins at 7:00 pm.

Please RSVP by calling 412-586-3777 or emailing edalfen@jfcspgh.org.
