Each year, Andrea would rally her friends to buy holiday gifts for the children at JAFCO. She reminded everyone of how blessed they are to have families that love them and financial security. Andrea encouraged all to share their blessings during the holiday season by providing some requested items as gifts to the children in need. We hope you will join us in keeping Andrea’s memory and generous spirit alive by donating to this wonderful holiday fund at JAFCO.

JAFCO’s mission is to care for abused and neglected children and those with developmental disabilities in the Jewish community while working in partnership with families in the entire community. JAFCO provides a full continuum of high quality services including foster care, adoption, family preservation, mentoring, independent living and developmental disability programs. The JAFCO Children’s Village, consisting of an Emergency Shelter and Six Group Homes, is one of the most unique and innovative programs in the nation. The JAFCO Children’s Ability Center supports families raising children with developmental disabilities by providing family enrichment, resources, and respite care all within one state-of-the-art center. JAFCO recently became officially licensed as a Foster Care and Adoption Agency in Pennsylvania and our Philadelphia office is providing family preservation services to families in the Northeast Communities…giving every child a place to belong.
