Encompass Friends

Community Planning

Encompass, with support from JUF Planning and Allocation professionals, is committed to strengthening agency partners toward the buildout of a system of services for Jewish adults, regardless of ability to pay, that is sustainable and that adheres to person-centered planning.

Recognizing that no one agency can meet the breadth and depth of identified need, JUF and Encompass have adopted a collaborative, partnership-based model to leverage resources, maximize efficiencies and minimize duplication of efforts in providing a full array of financially sustainable, community-based services. JUF and Encompass convene agency executives and community leaders toward these goals, and to develop broader options and more affordable models.
