The Circle of Hope

Join the Circle of Hope

These critical funds will allow us to operate this vital center and provide respite care, child enrichment activities and therapy for the children, as well as support services including parent support groups, counseling, case management and referral, sibling workshops, parent training, and 24-hour crisis support to hundreds of families in the tri-county area who are raising a child with a developmental disability.

Members of the Circle of Hope receive a beautiful specially commissioned 14K gold pin featuring the branches of the JAFCO Tree of Life lovingly encircling a parent joyfully pushing her child on a swing. This group of special individuals make a ten year pledge of $1,800 per year.

The Circle of Hope for Life

Donors who pledge to donate $1,800 a year as long as they are able receive two candle holders specially commissioned exclusively for JAFCO by artist Yaacov Heller.

Recommitted Circle of Hope

Donors making a second pledge of a minimum of $18,000 payable in one payment or over the next ten years receive one candle holder specially commissioned exclusively for JAFCO by artist Yaacov Heller.

For more information about joining the Circle of Hope, contact JAFCO Philanthropy Director Janet Epstein at 954-315-8696 or [email protected].
