JAFCO (Jewish Adoption and Foster Care Options)is a unique organization in South Florida that takes care of abused and neglected Jewish children in a tri-county area. The JAFCO Children's Village is the only village of it's kind throughout the nation. It consists of six group homes and an emergency shelter. To date, Jafco has provided services to over 2,000 children and currently serves over 350 children and their families through their continuum of services including: Family Preservation, Foster Care and Adoption, Emergency Services, Group Homes, Mentoring and Independent Living. Anyone who tours our 6 acre campus is very inspired by the quality of care the children receive. In addition, there is an amazing and dedicated staff. I was a social worker doing volunteer work with a JAFCO child and became increasingly more involved. I was very honored to be appointed to the Board of Directors of JAFCO four years ago. It has been such a privilege to be involved with this wonderful organization and to be part of caring for "our" children in their time of need.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing so many children thrive from the love and security they receive after being placed at the Village. Also insuring that these children retain their Jewish identity.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Sharing a passion for helping children with troubled pasts flourish and prepare for becoming productive adults.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I have found the highest quality professionals and volunteers.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Realize it's dream to build another village for developmentally disabled children and provide respite care for their families.
