Yana's Final Celebrate JFS as CEO

Tuesday, July 05, 2016

Celebrate JFS crowdApproximately 200 people attended Celebrate JFS, Jewish Family Service's annual meeting and celebration of volunteers, board, supporters, and staff held June 27. Guests of all ages gathered at Palazzo Verdi near Fiddler’s Green, and sampled sumptuous hors d’oeuvres and drinks while mingling and enjoying the art in the adjacent Madden Museum.

After about an hour, the guests were seated for a short program. Rabbi Salomon Gruenwald, JFS board member and rabbi of Hebrew Educational Alliance, gave an inspirational D’var Torah (commentary) about the important work JFS does for the community. 

Nancy Benyamin, director of volunteer services, thanked all of our volunteers, gave some highlights of volunteer Allan Cohenachievements from the past year, and introduced the Max Frankel Volunteer of the Year Award recipient, Dr. Allan Cohen. Dr. Cohen, a retired psychologist, has volunteered with the Mental Health Services department for 12 years, providing pro bono counseling services to a variety of JFS clients. Recently through the JFS Colorado Senior Connections (CSC) program, Allan began hosting weekly office hours for residents of Edgewater Plaza who are 60 years or older. Allan graciously accepted the award and entertained guests with his humorous comments.

Yana VishnitskyPresident & CEO Yana Vishnitsky, who is retiring at the end of 2016, gave an update from the past fiscal year. She talked about program highlights, changes, and some significant losses the agency experienced. She thanked the exemplary staff, dedicated volunteers, and generous supporters, and received a well-deserved standing ovation. 

David Friedman, board member and outgoing Development Committee chair, introduced a new donor recognition and David Friedmanannual giving program called "Authors of Hope." Stay tuned for more details on how you can get involved in this program in the coming months. True to form, David had the crowd laughing and I hate to say it, but you just had to be there to understand his jokes!

Jane E. Rosenbaum installing new board membersJane E. Rosenbaum, board chair, closed the program by first telling everyone that she wouldn't be as funny as Allan or David and then did a beautiful job thanking Yana for her 38 years of service (16 as CEO). She installed new board members Jason Cooper, Mark Krivel, and Marty Rosenbaum (who was unable to attend) and recognized outgoing members Rocky Miller and Kerry Shelanski for their dedication. Rabbi Gruenwald then blessed the new board members and the work they will do for JFS.

My Lunchbox Express Volunteer Experience

Friday, July 01, 2016

 

As the Jewish Family Service associate director of marketing and communications, I had seen Lunchbox Express in action many times over the past few years since we took over the summer lunch program. I had taken photos of volunteers handing out food to kids at various locations and worked with media to get stories of the program.

This year, I decided to volunteer with my 11-year-old daughter, Hannah. We went on two different routes the past two Thursdays—one in southeast Denver/Aurora and one in southwest Denver. Much to Hannah’s chagrin, we didn’t get to ride on the Lunchbox Express bus as most volunteers do because minors can’t ride the bus (for liability and insurance reasons), so we followed the bus to each stop.

Hannah showing the food
"Mom, you're really making me pose with the food?!"

Even though I was quite familiar with the program, it felt good to personally hand out the lunches, drinks, books (one day), and fruit (one day), and get to interact with the kids. Everyone was so appreciative and kind, including the bus drivers we worked with. We didn’t always know who spoke English, but luckily language didn’t get in the way of understanding each other.

On the first day, I met a few people who used other JFS services or had heard good things about the agency and were pleased to know that Lunchbox Express was one of our programs. It always feels good to step out of my office and meet some of the people we serve and to see firsthand the difference our work makes!

The experience made me appreciate (even more) that my kids don’t have to use a service like this. The bus driver offered Hannah a lunch the first day (since she’s under 18 and that’s the only qualification), but she declined, mostly because she didn’t like what was in it. We both realized that she would probably be a less-picky eater if she didn’t have enough to eat.


Selfies are a must when you're with an 11-year-old!

It was meaningful volunteering with my daughter and sparked some interesting conversations, many of which she didn’t want me to share! She did say it helped her appreciate what she has and is thankful she always has enough food. She also said, “It felt good to help people in need and it was a fun experience.”

I’m glad that it tore her away from her phone and iPad for a few hours and exposed her to other sides of the city and different populations than she’s used to seeing. It was a fun and valuable experience that I highly recommend!

If you are interested in volunteering for Lunchbox Express this summer or in the future (with or without your child), please contact Nancy Benyamin, director of Volunteer Services, at 720.248.4642.

Welcome to New JFS Therapists

Friday, May 13, 2016
In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, please help us welcome our two newest therapists: Rotem Brayer, MEd, LPC, Refugee Mental Health psychotherapist; and Deborah Goodman, LCSW, psychotherapist.

Rotem BrayerRotem Brayer, MEd, LPC, joined the JFS Refugee Mental Health department in December 2015. He grew up in Israel and moved to Massachusetts in 2007 to earn a master’s in education at Cambridge College. While in Boston, he worked at a community mental health center providing therapy for people with chronic mental illness, addiction, stress, or other issues.

He specialized in addictions, especially helping people in their 20s with behavioral addictions such as gaming and the Internet. While he didn’t specialize in working with refugees, he got referrals for clients from other countries and could easily relate to them since he didn’t grow up in the United States.

Rotem and his wife moved to Denver in 2015 for the mountains and quality of life. Before starting at JFS, he worked at Aurora Mental Health. In JFS’s Refugee Mental Health department, he sees adults from many war-torn countries, including Iraq, Congo, Iran, and Afghanistan. Rotem helps them with anxiety, depression, and adjustment issues.The clients he has seen so far have been in this country for anywhere from a month to eight years.

“So far I love everything about working at JFS,” says Rotem enthusiastically. “The work environment, my coworkers, and of course working with the clients have been wonderful.” He adds that he was attracted to this job because “I am interested in different cultures and relating to people’s experiences when they are coming from other countries.”

Deborah GoodmanDeborah (Debbie) Goodman, LCSW, joined the Jewish Family Service Mental Health Specialists team in February 2016. Originally from Denver, Debbie left in her 20s and lived in several states before landing back in Denver more than two years ago. She received her bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Colorado, followed by a master’s degree in applied early child development. She earned a second master’s degree in social work from the University of Michigan.

Debbie spent the majority of her career working with children; she counseled pregnant and parenting teens at an adolescent healthcare clinic, served as a Jewish educator and preschool teacher, and worked with foster care children. About four years ago, she started working with adults at two different mental health centers and discovered she really liked it because they could make decisions about their lives.

Her area of expertise is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (referred to as “ACT”), a cognitive behavior therapy that helps people gain skills to manage their symptoms so those symptoms don’t stop them from leading a value-laden life. “I am so passionate about this type of therapy,” Debbie says. “It is so effective and I have seen it turn people’s lives around! We’ve spent years thinking people had to get rid of their anxiety, depression, or other mental illnesses, but they don’t—they just need tools to manage and accept them.” She looks forward to employing this technique with both individual clients and starting a group at JFS in the near future.

So far, Debbie loves everyone she’s met at JFS and is very impressed with the longevity of the staff. “Everyone is so kind, sweet, and accepting,” she says. “I also really love working in a Jewish agency again—there is a comfort there.”

Debbie’s 29-year-old twin daughters have followed in her footsteps: Rebekkah works as a therapist in the Counseling Department of Regis University and Rachael is in a community psychology doctoral program at Michigan State University.

Caring Conversations with Older Adult Drivers

Friday, May 06, 2016

In honor of Older Americans Month, here are some helpful tips about how to have a caring conversation with an older adult when it may be time to limit or give up driving.


Photo from aarp.org

Safe mobility is essential to healthy aging. Driving has been recognized as a key factor in the well-being and independence of older adults. The idea of limiting or giving up driving can be a deeply personal and emotional issue for both the family and the driver. Communication about driving can trigger negative emotions, including sadness, powerlessness, frustration, anger, and decreased self-esteem. There is no easy way to approach the subject, but steps can be taken to preserve the driver’s freedom and mobility while ensuring safety on the road.

Prepare for the Conversation
  • Plan ahead: The first conversations about safety should occur long before driving becomes a problem. A frequent discussion allows for minor modifications and a gradual transition from driver to passenger.
  • Avoid stereotyping: Physical and cognitive functioning matters most in driving safely, not age. Avoid overgeneralizing, such as “older adults cannot drive.”
  • Observe driving ability: Gather facts and information on the driver’s skills and capabilities. Drive with him or her to learn what the specific safety risks are.
  • Who and where: Avoid holding a large family intervention and “ganging up” on the driver. Make privacy a priority; hold the conversation in a safe, comfortable, and private space.
Tips for a Successful Conversation
  • Be respectful: Acknowledge that this is difficult and avoid coming on too strong, as you may start the discussion off on the wrong foot.
  • Stick to the facts: Focus on actual driving capabilities based on information you have gathered, not on age.
  • Focus on safety: Clearly express your concerns about safety and the risks to the driver and others on the road. Ask how safe he or she feels on the road and assess comfort level.
  • Address independence concerns: Acknowledge the importance of maintaining connections to the people, places, and activities that are important.
Transportation Plan and Alternatives
  • Introduce transportation plan: Identify transportation needs and create a specific plan for how these needs will still be met.
  • Driving modifications: Minor modifications can address safety concerns while maintaining driver independence. These modifications include limiting night driving, driving on familiar and close streets, and avoiding the freeway, rush hour, and risky spots (ramps and left turns).
  • Friends and family: They are often a primary alternative for transportation. When providing transportation for your loved one, there are ways to frame the experience to be meaningful rather than just a “ride.” This can be done by asking the older adult to participate in family outings that already have planned transportation. Caring for your loved one demonstrates love and commitment, but it can become stressful and exhausting. It is important to understand that you are not alone and there are resources in the community to assist with some of the driving demands.
  • Community resources: There are various services designed to bridge the transportation gap in the aging community. These resources include public transit/fixed routes, paratransit, medical service providers, volunteer programs, and hired drivers. The service suitable for your loved one may vary in accessibility, driving needs, affordability, and eligibility.

For more information on transportation resources, please contact the Jay and Rose Phillips Senior Solutions Center at 303.597.5000.

JFS Executive Luncheon Featuring Al Pacino Raises Record Amount

Thursday, April 21, 2016

 

Acting legend Al Pacino entertained nearly 1,200 business and professional leaders attending Jewish Family Service’s (JFS) 12th annual JFS Executive Luncheon held on April 13 at the Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center. Before Pacino took the stage, the audience was moved by a video about Family Safety Net clients whom JFS helped with rent and food assistance, a “Job Success Series for Women” class co-led by Dress for Success, and employment case management services.

Jane E. Rosenbaum Board chair Jane E. Rosenbaum, shared a bit more about the clients' story (they weren't at the event because they recently started new jobs) and announced a $100,000 matching opportunity for money raised in the room. Attendees generously donated more than $103,000 in the room to make the match.

In total, the event raised more than $842,000 to support the life-transforming programs of Jewish Family Service, making it the highest-grossing fundraiser in JFS history! 

Following a video montage of Al Pacino’s career, the actor received a standing ovation from the attendees in the packed ballroom as he took the stage. He then sat down for an interview with Ron Bostwick, an entertainment producer and radio show host.

During the 90-minute interview, Pacino captivated the audience with stories about his award-winning acting career and lifePacino and Bostwick experiences. He credited his eighth grade drama teacher for encouraging him to pursue this line of work. “She even got me to read the Bible every day…and I practiced reading it with passion to hone my craft,” he shared. He talked about his first movie role in Panic in Needle Park and how it led to one of his most famous roles in The Godfather series. While Pacino is primarily known for his work in films, he spoke about his love of Shakespeare and said he is currently learning King Lear, “which may take up to a year because I want to do it right.”

At the end of the interview, he took several questions from the audience and even signed a junior high school classmate’s yearbook. He concluded the luncheon with a monologue of an excerpt of one of his favorite Oscar Wilde poems. The fundraiser’s Chief-level sponsors were then invited to pose for photos with Pacino at a private reception.

Thank you to more than 115 companies, organizations, foundations, and individuals that supported the event through sponsorships.

Co-chairsThank you to event co-chairs Leanna Harris, Aaron Hyatt, Jim Miller (who was unable to attend), and Stanton Rosenbaum and the amazing, dedicated committee who helped us sell sponsorships and fill the room. A special thank-you to Aaron Hyatt, shareholder at Brownstein Farber Hyatt Schreck, LLP, for graciously serving as the emcee.

 

Lisa, Yana, DawnThank you to president & CEO Yana Vishnitsky and "twins" from the development department, Lisa Benoit and Dawn Richard, for their event oversight and planning!

And thank you to everyone who attended the luncheon! We’d love to hear your feedback—please post comments here!

Wheat Ridge Seniors Learn about Alternative Health Options

Friday, April 01, 2016

On March 15, more than 40 seniors attended an Alternative Health and Wellness Fair hosted by Colorado Senior Connections–Wheat Ridge (CSC-WR). Six professionals from many local businesses dedicated their time and energy to share their knowledge and expertise to those in attendance, including Jefferson Center for Mental Health, Human Harmonies, Transforming Arts, Adio Chiropractic, Saanti Massage Studio, and Good Needles. Students from the Nutrition Therapy Institute in Denver and Red Rocks Holistic Health also came to share their knowledge and skills.

 

In the morning, participants learned about and participated in meditation, medical hypnotherapy, aromatherapy, and Thai Chi/Qigong. During a wonderful lunch sponsored by InnovAge, participants had an opportunity to attend a mini resource fair and receive information and assistance from various organizations in the community. After lunch, participants were able to learn about and try more alternative health modalities including chiropractic, Thai yoga massage, food as medicine energy medicine self-care, and acupuncture/Chinese herbal medicine.



Those in attendance gained an abundance of knowledge and a few were lucky enough to walk away with a free 90-minute hypnosis session or a complimentary acupuncture consultation.

The idea for the Alternative Health and Wellness Fair came from the Senior Advisory Committee. CSC-WR looks forward to hosting more activities and events suggested by the seniors.

Colorado Senior Connections–Wheat Ridge is offered in partnership with Jewish Family Service of Colorado, Seniors Resource Center, HealthSET, Jefferson Center for Mental Health, and Brothers Redevelopment, Inc.
