Our Capital Campaign currently stands at $12m (including cash, land and bequests). Another $18m in naming opportunities are available to complete construction and to create an operational endowment supporting the family enrichment, family support and respite services offered at the center. We truly appreciate the love and support of existing capital donors who have turned a dream into reality by creating the amazing state-of-the-art JAFCO Children’s Ability Center.

The list of remaining naming opportunities is located below along with the list of contributing donors.

Everyone is invited to tour the Children’s Ability Center which is truly the only one of its kind in the country. We need the support of the entire community in order to…give every child a place to belong. For more information please contact Randi Winter, JAFCO Capital Campaign Director at randi@jafco.org or 954-315-8689
