The annual Benefit raises essential funds to ensure that resources are available to support the innovative and comprehensive programs that JF&CS provides the community. With the current public health crisis, each day brings new challenges: low-income families facing financial emergencies, parents struggling to care for their children, older adults dealing with isolation, and people with disabilities in need of help. JF&CS assists our most vulnerable populations regardless of their background or ability to pay. Now more than ever, our programs and our clients are depending on the incredible generosity of our donors.
