Join us for coffee and a tour of our facility to learn about the positive impact JFS Orlando has in the Central Florida community.
The Power of Giving: KidsKonnect
KidsKonnect is an in-school group counseling program developed by JFS Orlando to meet the critical needs of children experiencing family disruption such as divorce, separation, parent incarceration, homelessness, military deployment of a parent or a child placed with relatives.

Currently, JFS is serving 54 children throughout five Orange County elementary schools. Since its inception in 2000, KidsKonnect has served over 7,500 children in Central Florida Schools. This valuable service is provided to students at no charge regardless of race, religion or socioeconomic status.
The lines of communication began to open between us, and Jill is now capable of expressing her feelings appropriately. KidsKonnect gave her "permission" to be herself, and has also given her the life tools she needs for personal success.
 -6th grade parent
Parents and teachers report children who participate in the program make statistically significant improvements in dealing with emotions rather than letting them impact their daily work, grades and relationships.

Help a child overcome their challenges by supporting the JFS Orlando KidsKonnect program today!
Celebrating Passover 2018
Did you know...?JFS Orlando delivers kosher meals during the Jewish high holidays to homebound seniors who otherwise would not be able to celebrate the holidays.
