During National Child Abuse Prevention Month, Remember JFCS is Here to Help

April 10th, 2014 · Leave a Comment

Founded in 1917, Jewish Family & Community Services helps about 15,000 disadvantaged people a year on a $7.2 million annual budget – yet remains one of the area’s best-kept philanthropic secrets.

Jewish Family & Community Services in Jacksonville facilitates more than 100 adoptions a year; provides thousands of residents with crisis financial aid and food; supports struggling middle-schoolers; counsels families; helps young people transition out of foster care into adulthood; aids Holocaust survivors that live in Northeast Florida; and provides a safety net in other ways for those struggling– whatever their faith.

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month, and JFCS wants to remind everyone about our counseling programs for families, couples and children and their parents. Our other services include in-home counseling, anger management and a foster care program that provides safe and loving homes for hundreds of children in Northeast Florida.

Much of our efforts are geared toward protecting children from abuse.

So, as we approach a century of doing what we do in Northeast Florida, we’d like to re-introduce ourselves to our fellow community members. If you know someone who could use our services, please reach out to us.

Please take a minute to visit our website at www.jfcsjax.org, learn more about our mission.
