opening of Longboat Key facility

Longboat Key now plays host to more counseling programs for seniors and caregivers, thanks to the new Jewish Family and Children’s Services campus in the Tidewell Building at 540 Bay Isles Road.

The Longboat Key Chamber of Commerce hosted a ribbon-cutting for JFCS’s new facility in the Tidewell Building on May 2. The organization has been operating out of the office for several months but invited board members and supporters to Longboat Key to celebrate the expansion. A big portion of JFCS’s services are geared toward seniors, and a lot of their clients live on the island. Being able to meet them where they are will be important and have a powerful impact, said Stacy Lang, the chief of behavioral health services.
