You might not even realize it, but your neighbor missed 34 days of school last year because her home life isn’t stable. With your help, JFCS can give her the tools and support she needs to thrive in school, while also learning how to deal with issues in her home and personal life. We all share a responsibility to help those in need. 
Let’s do good together.

COVID-19 was hard on everyone. But for many seniors in our community, especially those living alone or with dementia, the fear and isolation were devastating. JFCS believes we all share the obligation to help those who cannot help themselves. 
Let’s do good together.
