Women's Breakfast
Caring for Generations

JF&CS Virtual Women's Breakfast

The goal of the Women’s Breakfast is to raise funds to support the needs of families with young children, especially low-income families. Today, more than ever, our work is critical to meet our clients’ basic needs. We are excited to honor First Lady Lauren Baker, who is on the front line responding to this crisis, working in tireless partnership with the Department of Children and Families.

The Women's Breakfast raises critical funds for the JF&CS Center for Early Relationship Support® (CERS), which helps new parents realize their inner strength, empowering them in their role as a parent. While being a new parent is never easy, the current public health crisis is putting many families under enormous stress as they contend with unemployment, social isolation, and the closing of childcare centers. The highly-trained volunteers and staff at CERS are a resource for new parents at this challenging time, offering support groups, clinical therapy, and other programs that foster growth and resilience. Your generosity makes our transformative work possible.
