We are in challenging and unprecedented times. As we all navigate this new way of living and working together, one thing that remains constant is that JFCs is here for our clients and we are here for each other.

 

We are watching closely what our City, State and Federal government is saying and doing and translating that into what that means for us as an organization.

 

We are exploring ways to reach members of our community using the core competencies that we all have to alleviate stress and anxiety. We are communicating with many similar agencies across the country to learn more and better understand policies put forth from our Governor and the Federal government.

 

Many in the community want to help our clients and want to know what plans we have put in place to reach the most vulnerable.

 

You can be reassured we remain committed to providing the best care we can offer to all of our clients during these challenging times.

 

We continue to closely follow the community needs of the community we serve and how we address these ever changing needs.

 

JFCS is here for you and we will get through this together. Stay safe.
