“Mom says we are going to see our big family at JFCS.”
Alli is a very tough 4-year-old. She has a wonderful family, but it hasn’t been easy for them. When Alli was born with a severe disability her care needs were so great that her mom, Janine, could not go back to work. Money has been very tight and when Alli was only 2-years-old her grandma died suddenly of a heart attack. Janine’s grief was debilitating. Now JFCS has become their extended family and helps with care management, grief support, financial aid, and even counseling for Alli’s brothers.
“I never thought we would need help.”
Ida is proud of her independence and healthy at 87. She did not plan on needing assistance or care later in life, but when her husband of 58 years had a stroke she couldn’t take care of him on her own. With an extremely limited fixed income and no children nearby, Ida and Saul needed home care a few days a week to be able to remain in their home. “I’m slowing down and it’s been so nice to have help with meals and baths for Saul. JFCS will be there for us.”
“We would have been on the streets without JFCS.”
Olivia, a single mom with no family, met a man who promised to take care of her and Marcus. When he began to hit her, Olivia knew they had to leave. She remembers, “I was a mess when we were taken in by JFCS’ Dream Program. It wasn’t only the abuse I was afraid of, but also where we would live and how I could support us.” JFCS helped Olivia find stable housing and provided therapeutic, vocational, and financial counseling. They are safe and back on their feet.
