Raising Money for a Cause

Benefiting JCC Special Needs Programs for Children and Adults

Sunday, April 29

"On behalf of my daughter and our entire family, I want to say THANK YOU! Thank you for having such a robust support program for young adults with special needs.  The past six months have been very invigorating for my daughter, and she has expressed her love for the staff and everyone at the JCC. It has been such a pleasure to watch her develop in so many ways and it is all as a result of the creativity and attention she receives while in the program. So much of who she is today is because of J-Cares. Her vocabulary has expanded and her interaction with members of the community has improved tremendously. Every day she shares her experiences and is eager to return the following day to do it all over again.  As she continues to prepare for life in the real world, I am confident she will succeed because of the skills she is acquiring while at J-Cares. She has had the opportunity to explore food shopping, meal preparation, greeting guests and interaction with everyone from preschoolers to seniors."


This fundraising initiative has been created and led by a committee of Teens and Adults at the Shimon and Sara Birnbaum JCC.
