Jewish Adoption and Family Care Options (JAFCO) is a non-profit organization established in South Florida in 1992 to serve abused and neglected children. JAFCO was created to fill an unmet need within the Jewish community and as a Jewish organization it is our privilege and pleasure to care for any child in need regardless of race, color, national origin, or religious affiliation.
In April of 2014 we opened our first expansion office, serving the Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey communities. This office offers family strengthening support services, supervised visitation, and support groups for siblings and parents of children with special needs.
We are proud to be bringing our two decades of private foster care, adoption, and family strengthening experience to FamilyMatters. Our goal is to use our expertise in child welfare to work in collaboration with existing local agencies to provide an immediate, comprehensive, and cost-free response to a family in crisis while creating an additional safety net for children who are at risk of abuse, neglect, or abandonment.
