					Jewish Family & Children’s Service (1879-1987)
(ca. 8 cu ft) [Location 4.5-7]
The Jewish Family & Children’s Service evolved from a series of mergers among various
Jewish communal service agencies. The Hebrew Relief Association, formed in 1871 in
the wake of the Chicago fire, became the Hebrew Alliance in 1876. The Hebrew
Alliance, in turn, merged with other agencies in 1898 to become the United Jewish
Educational and Charitable Associations (shortened to the Jewish Charitable and
Education Association in 1916). Located at 9th and Carr Streets in St. Louis from 1902 to
1920, JECA moved to 3636 Page and changed its name to the Jewish Community Center
at that time.

The three major divisions of the Jewish Community Center included the Family Service
Department, the Clubs and Social Department and the Religious Department. In 1930 the
YMHA took over the Clubs and Social Department and the synagogues and temples
absorbed the Religious Department. With only the Family Service Department
remaining, the Jewish Community Center changed its name to the Jewish Social Service
Bureau. After another name change to the Jewish Family Service Society, the agency
merged with the Jewish Child Welfare Association in 1962 to become the Jewish Family
& Children’s Service.

The JFCS’s New Americans program records provide detailed information about
individuals who arrived in the St. Louis area in the 1970s & 1980s.
