JCFS Staff Experience Quotes

I have been here almost 2 years and I have learned so much. JFCS provides trainings and support to make sure you can succeed.

- Vernetta, Case Aide in Child Welfare (she, her, hers)


At the end of the day it’s my fellow co-workers at my work site who support me the most. I like that we can walk down our hallways and talk to each other and discuss our clinical work and how we can support each other during difficult periods in our work.

- Ben, Assistant Director in Community Counseling (he, him, his)


I came from a job where there was no growth and no team players. JCFS helps you grow and helps you get to the place you want to be with on the job training. Everyone is a team player and willing to help if asked.
