About Us

Events that change the world.

Our new event center will help support children who have developmental disabilities, those who have experienced abuse and neglect, and the trauma of a mass shooting in our community. JAFCO’s mission is to provide care, safety and support to children and their families within the Jewish community and beyond who are impacted by abuse, neglect, trauma, or developmental disabilities…giving every child a place to belong.

A community of love and support for children and families… we are at your side.

We are all connected in this very special world, one in which all of us together are committed to acts of love and kindness, a world dedicated to helping others, where every child and every family in our community receives the love, commitment and compassion they need. We are always there for one another… 8 days a week.

JAFCO Children’s Village programs touch the lives of children who have experienced abuse or neglect. The JAFCO Children’s Village campus provides an actual home to over 100 children each year in our emergency shelter or group homes, and is the only center of its kind in the Jewish community in the nation. Another 500 children each year find safety in either our foster care, adoption or family preservation programs.
