Jewish Family & Children’s Service receives Kovod Award for website
Jewish Family & Children’s Service of Pittsburgh was selected by the Association of Jewish Family and Children’s Agencies as the recipient of the coveted annual Kovod Award for excellence in agency websites. The JF&CS
winning entry, jfcspgh.org, is the newly developed website launched in June 2010.
JF&CS is a multifaceted social service agency providing assistance in the areas of adoption, career counseling and job placement, critical needs/emergency assistance, elder care, guardianship, immigration and refugee services, mental health counseling, and special needs services. The agency also administers the Squirrel Hill Community Food Pantry, which serves those in the 15217 Zip code who qualify for food assistance.
JF&CS’s new website has generated a significant increase in traffic and resulted in many new referrals to JF&CS services.
The AJFCA is a membership organization of more than 145 Jewish family and children’s agencies and specialized Jewish human service agencies throughout the United States and Canada. The Kovod Award winners were determined by an independent panel of judges who evaluate submissions from agencies across North America. Criteria for the award include ease of use, breadth of content, design, visual appeal and effectiveness.
Awards were presented at May’s AJFCA Annual Conference in Calgary, Canada. Visit jfcspgh.org to view the site in its entirety.
