Carl Zack, Interim CEO of JF&CS

During my five-month tenure as Interim CEO of JF&CS, I have had the opportunity to learn first-hand the impact our programs have on transforming the lives of our clients. We help people when they are at their most vulnerable, understanding the challenges our clients face when working within systems that can be difficult to navigate. While the saying is trite, it truly "takes a village" to support the needs of our clients and to make a lasting impact.

Each of you – our donors and volunteers – are a part of this village. In 2018, volunteers donated 24,990 hours of time, ensuring that our clients know they are cared for and supported. Last year, over 5,000 donors contributed more than $6 million to JF&CS. Your generosity has impacted the lives of more than 14,000 individuals and their families.

I'm proud to serve JF&CS during this pivotal time of transition to ensure that our programs and services are delivered at the highest quality possible. I have been incredibly impressed to meet our employees and renew relationships with colleagues I have known for decades. Seeing our goal to improve people's lives being carried out daily by experts in their field and professionals who care deeply about the clients we serve, I can confidently say that JF&CS is stronger than ever.
