I am Jessica Carty, a clinical social worker and counselor at JFS. Over the last 19 years I have worn many hats at the agency, but most recently I have begun working with Connecting Hearts since the program joined JFS in 2018. I am thrilled to return to my roots working with children and parents in foster care! My years in adoption have helped shape my understanding and appreciation of the Adoption Triad: the relationship between birth parents, adoptive parents, and the adoptee.
JFS Connecting Hearts hopes to support our families and partners through training and education. We are excited to grow, and we look to you to share your ideas and experiences to help our program! Please reach out if you have any questions about foster care and adoption. Additionally, please call JFS if you or someone you know could use counseling services for adoptive families or adoptees. We are here to help with resources or counseling. Don't hesitate to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
