JFS receives $20K grant


JFS Orlando’s Executive Director Eric Geboff has announced that JFS Orlando has been awarded a $20,000 grant from the William J. and Dorothy K. O’Neill Foundation.

“We are very thankful for the support of the William J. and Dorothy K. O’Neill Foundation,” said Geboff. “This grant helps JFS Orlando continue to make a difference in the lives of Central Floridians in need.”

The grant supports JFS Orlando’s Family Stabilization Program (FSP)—a preventative, six-month case management program designed to help families obtain self-sufficiency by teaching them critical skills and tools to resolve crises and avoid future hardships while achieving long-term stability.

The program’s primary objectives are to improve money management skills, family functioning, mental health functioning, and to maintain or improve employability and housing while reducing stress. This is accomplished by providing clients with a variety of supportive services at no cost to participants. 

In 2014, FSP had more than 50 participating families and almost 250 case sessions.

The William J. and Dorothy K. O’Neill Foundation is a private, family foundation based in Cleveland, Ohio.  The Foundation works in collaboration with organizations to improve the quality of lives for families and communities.
