Jewish Family and  Children’s Service Raises $300,000 at  Brighter Tomorrow Luncheon

(PHOENIX – March 8, 2017) – Jewish Family & Children’s Service (JFCS) raised more than $300,000 at its Brighter Tomorrow Luncheon, held Friday, Feb. 24 at the Arizona Biltmore. The luncheon was attended by 468 people, and focused specifically on JFCS’ Real World Job Development Program, which provides educational and job assistance to foster youth transitioning into adulthood.

The luncheon’s keynote speaker was Andrew Bridge, Director of the Diane & Bruce Halle Foundation, a New York Times Bestselling author, lawyer and an advocate for children in foster care, in juvenile justice systems and with mental disabilities. Bridge, who grew up within the foster care system, spoke about his and JFCS’ collective commitment to social justice and seeking lasting solutions to the challenges that confront foster youth.

“The goals that Andrew addressed during his speech are the same goals that our team of social workers and clinicians work towards every day,” said Dr. Lorrie Henderson, President and CEO of JFCS. “Because of the generosity and commitment of our donors, lives will be transformed now and into the future. Our supporters truly create a brighter tomorrow for our community.”

JFCS’ programs are all focused on building a stronger community by offering quality behavioral health and social services to children, families and adults. JFCS’ dedication to its mission is strengthened by its commitment to the Jewish value system, a system that cares about all humanity.
