Please consider donating to the JHS.  Youth and families in our community are struggling.  The impact of 2 years of instability, lockdowns and isolation has had a grave impact on the mental health and well-being of so many.  Self referrals to our youth programs have increased 100% since before 2020.  Your donations allow us to offer more programming and supports that will improve community connections.


You can directly support over 580 community members (280 adults and 300 youth) through these critically needed services:
