The Kimmel-Spiller Healing Center provides a welcoming, tranquil space for the community to gather and visit, or simply reflect.  The Center also offers wellness and self-awareness programs throughout the year, as well as numerous volunteer opportunities for adults, children and teens.




Volunteer Opportunities abound with JFS. Help by mentoring at risk youth working toward their GED. Participate in special projects including: preparing Meals that Heal or offering a Holiday Helping Hand for families during the winter holidays. Volunteers can also assist an older adult by connecting with them through phone calls, friendly visits or running errands through our Shop for a Friend program. Assistance in office work is always appreciated. Our receptionist wears twenty different hats; assisting her with answering phones, handling data entry and filing would be marvelous! And of course, assistance is always needed for our gift basket program in which creative individuals can assist with assembling and wrapping baskets or delivering the baskets.

JFS also values donations for vulnerable families including:

  • Small-portioned frozen meals or soup to stock our mitzvah pantry
  • Gas cards, phone cards, and gift cards for clothing and school supplies
  • Wheeled carts to transport baskets and supplies

Youth Community Service and Mitzvah Projects

These volunteer projects are wonderful opportunities for young people to get involved!  Whether part of school extra-curricular requirements, a coming bar/bat mitzvah, or simply an activity for a summer day, The Kimmel-Spiller Healing Center offers several projects to build community spirit and help those in need.  Youth Community Service or Mitzvah Projects can also be developed for small student groups or individuals wishing to fulfill volunteer hours within the community.

To join in a project or for more information, complete the Volunteer Application, e-mail Volunteer Network Coordinator, Sarah LaFave at SLaFave@jfsdelaware.org or call at (302) 478-9411 #112.
