Undesignated Funds
The Family First Fund was established on the 80th Anniversary of Jewish Family Service. Families were asked to set aside resources “where need most” in an endowment. Since that time, all donations for unrestricted funds to the Houston Jewish Family Foundation are added to this resource. To see a list of families who participated, please click here.
