JFS Earns Superstars in Business Award from Delaware Chamber of Commerce

The Delaware State Chamber of Commerce and its Small Business Alliance (SBA) announced this year’s Superstars in Business award winners: Jewish Family Services (JFS) of Delaware, Action Unlimited Resources, L&W Insurance, and Schlosser & Associates Mechanical Contractors. The honorees will be recognized at an awards ceremony on November 2, 2022.

JFS Delaware was recognized for this award in the Nonprofit Category. Founded in 1899, JFS provides counseling and other social support services to individuals and their families. JFS also conducts refugee resettlement and other related services through the Refugee Integration Support Effort (RISE) program. JFS is licensed with the State of Delaware’s Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health and fully accredited by the National Council on Accreditation.

“JFS is thrilled to be receiving this award,” said JFS Delaware CEO, Renna Van Oot. “What we have to offer can only be delivered if we have the best talent providing the highest quality of social services, and we pride ourselves on finding innovative ways to meet the needs of the community.”

In its 24th year, the Marvin S. Gilman Superstars in Business awards program is named for one of Delaware’s most distinguished small business leaders—Marvin Gilman—who displayed the highest ethical standards, found innovative ways to improve the world around him, and inspired others to follow in his footsteps.

The program honors small businesses and nonprofit organizations for their outstanding achievements and model approaches to business and management. The awards are presented to companies that have been in business for at least three years and are small businesses based on the number of full-time employees.
