Unlike other providers, JFSA’s home cleaners are trained to identify potentially dangerous situations, such as a client’s declining health or forgetfulness. For example, if an oven is on, a door has been ajar all night, or there’s spoiled food sitting on the counter, our trained cleaners will bring it to the attention of JFSA  staff.

Our home cleaners are trained and supervised to clean your home efficiently and to your satisfaction.Every cleaner is insured and bonded, carries worker’s compensation, has undergone criminal background and driver’s license checks, and is regularly supervised by JFSA professional staff.

Services are private pay and subsidies are available for income-eligible Holocaust Survivors.
