The Suncoast is a beautiful place to live. Unfortunately, amongst our beautiful surroundings, there are many people who are struggling to find work, to secure housing, and to overcome addiction, just to name a few.
The world, and therefore our lives, seems to be moving at a more rapid pace than ever before. Although our intention to help those who need us is there, our focus can become sidetracked. And let’s face it, it is easier to avoid really looking at the difficult side of life.
At JFCS of the Suncoast, we
understand that the only way to be
good is to do good. We know that
real courage is about conviction. It’s
knowing that we can make things
better, bit by bit, one family at a
time. It’s understanding that it’s our
duty to help those in need and dig
deep to do the tedious, everyday
work of making it happen.
For 36 years, JFCS has been empowering individuals and families of all faiths and backgrounds. Our mission is to guide those who need us toward well-being and self-reliance by providing mental health and human services, and just caring about the people in our community – the people in YOUR community. What makes us unique is our ability to wrap around our services and provide support to multiple members of the same family who have a variety of needs.
Being good means doing good – it requires action on all of our parts. Join us, and let’s do good together. All it takes is a willingness to take action. To volunteer. To donate. That’s how we make our community stronger. That’s how we change lives for the better. One challenge, one person, one day at a time.
