Young Woman Discussing Problems With Counselor
Ezra means help in Hebrew. The Jewish Federation’s Ezra Network can help you access what you need. If you’re a college student living with food insecurity, a parent of a struggling teen, an employee facing post-COVID re-entry anxiety, or the caregiver of a parent or partner, you’re not alone. In the comfort and privacy of your own home or at a Jewish institution — virtually and in person — you can access one-on-one sessions with a social worker, legal counselor, or job counselor; get help with government program eligibility; access mental health services; obtain referrals for other services and information about upcoming workshops and support groups; and be screened for financial assistance. It’s all there for you — in private — and free.

Life is hard enough. Now getting help is easy, thanks to The Ezra Network.

The Ezra Network is an initiative of The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles in partnership with Jewish Family Service, Bet Tzedek Legal Services, and JVS SoCal.
