We BELIEVE that without our wonderful community, we would not be able to do and offer the things we do. Did you know we had more volunteers last year (2017) to help us with many many things than we had any other year? JCFCF FUN FACT We LOVE our volunteers!! We could NEVER do any of what we do and offer without you! We cherish each and every one of you and will always keep you close to our hearts!
We DREAM big and small...sometimes five steps ahead of where we actually are and what we can actually do but, we dream and have goals and have wishes for the Organization and our foster children, and we'll never stop dreaming for them!
We TRY our very best to offer services that meet the needs of the foster children in our community. We try to encourage the community to become engaged, learn about, and invest in these children. Children are the future of our community! Every child is! and each and every one of those children can do great things! It's within them even now, just waiting to come out and be the person they are so truly meant to be.
So, with all of that, we are looking forward to this new year and all of the new programs we have and are developing, all of our new volunteer friends, all of our new and past community donors and sponsors, and what the future will hold!

The Jefferson County Foster Children's Fund (JCFCF for short) is growing every day! When we started, we started with just one small event in 2009 in a conference room. Some of you may actually remember that event. Did any of you go to our last Christmas Party? It definitely was a lot bigger than a conference room at the Justice Center. The 2016 Christmas Party served 442 children!! We've definitely come a long way from that very first much smaller event.
JFCFC is growing by leaps and bounds. Our Board members are working hard on some super awesome plans that are creating some huge excitement! Sneak peak? well, okay, you twisted my arm. How about our very own office? EXCITING right?! We're making progress on some cosmetic upgrades with it, but this is so exciting! Our Board members will now have a base of operation and more storage for donations! What about more services for our foster children?! Yep, that's right, we're working on bringing some really helpful services to meet the needs of many of our foster kiddos that find themsevles struggling in some of their school classes. We're working on a Tutoring and Literacy program for our kiddos that will give them more support and assitance with their education. We're hoping to have everything in place for this program sometime in 2018.
We have alot of BIG plans to come in the future, some later than sooner as we get funding for the plans, but we'll share those plans and features along the way as we grow!
