created at: 2010-12-17April is National Volunteer Month! Thank you to all our volunteers for generously sharing your energy, expertise, and compassion with those in need. JF&CS would not be able to do our work without you.

We’re all familiar with Ben Franklin’s famous words, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” It means that a small effort now can help avoid a larger problem later.

At JF&CS we take the idea of prevention very seriously and have begun a strategic effort to create services to help those in need avoid more serious consequences later.
