BENEFITING: JEWISH CHILD CARE ASSOCIATION OF NEW YORK
Help Us Make the Holidays Special for Troubled!
James, 18 years old, is one of thousands of troubled teens JCCA helps. Last year, he spent his first Thanksgiving and Christmas with his family since he was three years old. When he was 16, he was having trouble with his adopted family, and ran away from home and found himself on the streets. He was referred to JCCA. We provided him with a safe, supportive environment. James is now living with his sister. He is in high school, has many new friends, plays basketball and mentors other young men. James recalled the holidays last year, “I felt so happy. I will never forget it--I felt loved for the first time in my life.”
James is just one of the 16,000 youth and families that JCCA, a nonprofit, comprehensive, multicultural child and family services agency, helps every year. We want to make this holiday season a special time for ALL our abused and traumatized children and teens. Your support will enable us to buy new special holiday gifts. We believe that every child deserves to grow up hopeful. Please help us make this belief a reality. THANK YOU!
