Back to Business

Strictly Business is JVS SoCal’s premier annual event honoring outstanding individuals and corporate partners in our community who have set the standard for social responsibility and philanthropy. We look forward to seeing you at our first in-person event since 2019 as we celebrate The Power of Partnership and continue celebrating 90 years of service in Southern California.

We are grateful to our partners for sharing our vision and commitment to building thriving communities with hope and economic opportunity for all. The Power of Partnership enables us to achieve what we could not on our own and empowers our clients with the tools, training, and resources to overcome barriers to employment and transform their lives.
