Tucked in the back parking lot of Jewish Family Service Association (JFSA), a Federation beneficiary agency is Alyson’s Place Medical Clinic embedded into the social service agency. Alyson's Place provides easy access to clients of JFSA, bringing together professionals and staff well-versed in people with diverse needs.

The services provided are general healthcare, podiatry, and ophthalmology. Alyson's Place has also created a geriatric assessment program for dementia. JFSA works with University Hospitals and MetroHealth physicians, as well as the Dental School at Case Western Reserve University.

"JFSA is an organization that understands people in their heart," said Dr. David Rosenberg of University Hospitals, who helped build Alyson's Place. "The clients realize that and understand that if they need social services, if they need help, if they need housing, food, anything, there are certain services at JFSA to help these individuals. It’s a perfect match."
