Founded in 1985, JFCS is a fully accredited community-based social service organization that delivers a broad range of professional counseling services and social services to individuals, families, seniors, veterans, children and individuals and caregivers impacted by a cancer diagnosis on a non-denominational basis. 
 
Somewhere in our community someone's life is better because of the work JFCS does each day in responding to the community's urgent and compelling needs.  We give the people we help the ability not only to cope, but also to overcome and ultimately flourish in their lives.
 
Individuals turn to JFCS when they are overwhelmed by the problems of everyday life.  JFCS offers a helping hand and never turns clients away because they are unable to pay for services.  Through comprehensive counseling, the agency empowers individuals by helping them identify their challenges and make life-altering changes to improve the quality of their lives.  JFCS promotes self-sufficiency and provides people with the resources and internal tools to make positive choices and changes.
 
JFCS provides more than 26 programs coordinated from a network of 17 locations throughout Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte, DeSoto, Lee & Collier Counties.   From just a handful of social workers, JFCS has grown to 100+ licensed social workers, psychologists, family therapists and professional and support staff.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President
This year, JFCS has been awarded several new major grants that allows the agency to expand its services to high-risk populations including homeless veterans, parents of young children, individuals suffering from Alzheimer's and former inmates looking to start a new life.  Securing these grants requires the Board to ensure the agency is properly staffed and our technology can support the demands of these new programs as well as existing programs. The current budget provides funding to support the agency's infrastructure in a responsible and balanced manner while ensuring that administrative overhead costs remain low.  The Board is also committed to strengthening the role and impact volunteers have with the agency by providing additional ways to engage and connect volunteers. 
Statement from the CEO/Executive Director
JFCS provides safety net services to improve the quality of life for all residents, especially those confronting life's challenges.  These services are designed to be cost effective, for example, saving participants - and the community - the cost of paying for nursing home placements by enabling older adults to age in their own homes with the supportive services they need to do so healthfully and saving the juvenile justice system money by helping children improve their behaviors and their success in school.  By serving people at all stages of life and focusing on the strengths of participants and their families and neighborhoods, JFCS is able to provide a one-stop solution to many of the issues challenging area residents and the greater community.

Short Term Success

Short-term outcomes for the OMAP Program include:

  • 319 veteran households will be served during FY 2016-2017.  (4th quarter 2015-16 actual 297) 
  • Of the households served, 60% will be literally homeless.                YTD through the 4thQ of FY 15-16: 74% were homeless.
  • Of the households served, 40% will be “at risk” of being homeless  YTD through the 4th Q of FY 15-16: 26% were at "at risk" of being homeless.
Long Term Success

JFCS tracks the long-term success of the OMAP Program using the following outcome:

  • Of the veteran households who are literally homeless at the time of entry into the OMAP Program, 70% will obtain permanent housing as a result of the services provided and will maintain permanent housing at the time of exit from the program.                 YTD through the 4th Q of FY 15-16: 74% obtained and maintained permanent housing. 
Program Success Monitoring

Extensive case files are maintained on all program participants which document the services provided and the results achieved in terms of obtaining/maintaining permanent housing. This information is entered by client case managers into the computerized client case management information system (known as the Homeless Management Information System, or HMIS) which is maintained for each county in the service area. At the end of each month, the client data in the HMIS is uploaded to the VA’s Data Repository in Virginia and monthly reports are generated for each SSVF-funded project. Analysis of these reports enable JFCS to track the services being provided to each client and the results being achieved by the program. In addition, case managers regularly review each other’s work in a formal peer review process, and “customer satisfaction” surveys are distributed to program participants on a regular basis. Information from these surveys is used to identify changes needed and to improve program operations.

Program Success Examples
  •  An Iraqi war veteran, honorably discharged and living in the woods in Sarasota, was referred to OMAP by the local police department. Several staff met the veteran in the woods and within a short period of time developed a trusting relationship with the young veteran. Utilizing SSVF funding, OMAP placed the Veteran in permanent housing, and with donor funding we were able purchase a bicycle to get around town, purchase bus passes get to medical appointments and a rental deposit. Today, the veteran is working full-time and enrolled in school to be electrician.
  • Steven served six (6) years in the U.S. Army, honorably discharged and served in Operation Iraq Freedom (combat veteran). He was referred to JFCS by the Salvation Army. OMAP permanently housed the Veteran in Sarasota. He was enrolled in the culinary boot camp where he graduated, and soon thereafter became fully employed at Patrick’s Restaurant as a Chef. The combat veteran had culinary background in the military, but thanks to donor funding of the culinary boot camp, he was able to achieve the position of Chef.
  • Fredrick was honorably discharged veteran after four years of service. He fell on hard times and ended up homeless in Sarasota. He was referred to JFCS by the Salvation Army. OMAP utilized all its resources to permanently house the veteran in Sarasota. He was working as a line cook at Ruth's Chris Steak House. OMAP enrolled the Veteran in culinary boot camp, funded by your generous donation, and upon successfully completing the culinary boot camp, the Veteran was promoted to the position of Assistant to the Chef, and today makes an excellent living.

Comments
Program Comments by Organization

Existing challenges faced by JFCS include decreased funding for human services through local and state resources and a shortage of available experienced licensed clinical social workers.  JFCS continues to seek alternative funding sources and grants for targeted programs that address the critical needs of vulnerable populations such as veterans, caregivers, Alzheimer’s & dementia related seniors and the homeless.  In October 2015, JFCS began to offer its Cancer Support & Wellness programs to fill in the program service gap created by the closing of the Center for Building Hope. JFCS believes that offering these Cancer Support & Wellness Programs carry forth our mission and vision to assure that we have a community where people feel, "cared for, safe and strong."
