BOCA RATON — Audrey A. Anspach, MSW, joined the staff of Ruth Rales Jewish Family Service (JFS) to provide case management for families with dependent children. This new component expands the JFS array of services for families and children, which address financial, physical, mental health, social and other needs.

 “We are extremely grateful to the Viner Family Foundation and Hands on Tzedakah, whose generosity has greatly enhanced our capacity to help families in crisis,” said Beth Levine, JFS Director of Administration. “So many families who come to us for help at their weakest point will benefit from having a case manager assist with gathering information, accessing resources, navigating through the system and getting counseling.”

 “As the economy continued to take its toll on families and children, it became critical for JFS to provide them with more comprehensive help,” said Danielle N. Hartman, JFS President and CEO. “Ruth Rales Jewish Family Service has always strived to recognize and meet the needs of the community. With our new case management services, families in crisis will receive the guidance and support they need to get back on their feet.”  

 Anspach’s experience spans inpatient and outpatient mental health counseling, chemical dependency care, crisis intervention and stabilization, hospice care, and a social work internship at Jewish Family Services of Greater Orlando. She completed her MSW in 2009 at the University of Central Florida, where she held a Provost’s Graduate Fellowship. She received her BA in Psychology Summa Cum Laude from Florida Atlantic University.

 Since 1979, Ruth Rales Jewish Family Service has been providing help in South Palm Beach County through a comprehensive range of programs and services that support people of all ages and beliefs, including local Holocaust survivors.
