FAMILY Fund providing Christmas gifts for foster kids

Every year, HCJFS seeks donations to provide Christmas gifts to all the foster children in our care.chrissiyaholiday

You can help. Your donation to the FAMILY Fund can be used to make a merry Christmas for a boy or girl waiting for a forever home.

The FAMILY (Friends and Advocates Making Investments in Local Youth) Fund was created to help the agency cover expenses that go beyond what the agency is allowed to fund or for which it has very limited funds.

A board of community members will oversee the fund, following bylaws that have been established to comply with state law.

“JFS frequently receives inquiries from members of the public as to how they might help some of the families and children served by our agency,” said Moira Weir, director of JFS. “Whether it be a family in need during the holidays or a foster child attempting to make the transition to adulthood, there are many good people who would like the option of making donations. We are excited they now have that option. It will open up new doors for our children.”
