Campus Volunteers: Offering Thanks At This Year's Volunteer Appreciation Dinner

Our 500 caring volunteers who help vulnerable youth on JCCA’s Westchester Campus were celebrated by our youth at our annual Volunteer Recognition Dinner recently. This is what some of them said:

"You make a bad day into a good one, give me the hugs I need, tell me things I need to hear. You bring me hope and love." Anthony

"When I am around my volunteer, something deep and dark inside of me lights up." Christian

"Volunteers are caring and kind...It’s like God put them on earth for a reason. They treat us as their own children in a special and generous way....I am a better person because of them." Joshua

Thanks to 1,595 of you who signed our petition urging the US Senate to pass the Trafficking Victims Protection Act

Eyes of Child Abuse VictimsThe U.S. Senate has now passed an amended version of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act. The legislation would increase penalties for perpetrators of trafficking and increase support for the victims. Now the bill goes to a committee to work out differences with the version of the bill passed by the House of Representatives. We are hopeful an agreement will be reached soon.

This bill would help protect vulnerable young women like the ones we serve at our Gateways program. Our program enables these victims to heal and lead productive lives.

Child Abuse Alert Booklet

 

 

 

Check out our recently updated 20-page booklet Child Abuse Alert, which is aimed at the general public as well as friends, neighbors, and family members of children at risk, and professionals who work with children and are legally mandated to report child abuse. Child Abuse Alert outlines the signs of different types of abuse and neglect, including physical abuse, sexual abuse, and sexual commercial exploitation. It describes how to report suspected abuse and gives phone numbers. It is being published by Jewish Child Care Association in partnership with the Council of Family and Child Caring Agencies (COFCCA). First published in 1998, the booklet is being updated due to the continuing demand from human resources departments, teachers, libraries, and others organizations. Check out the full resource page here.

Autism Awareness Month: Kristen Finds Her Dream Job

Kristen and Mary H.

From Kristen's speech at the Toast to Success on March 26, 2015:

I have come such a long way since I first came to JCCA’s Compass Project. I was a student at Suffolk County Community College when I was first introduced to Compass. My parents were impressed with how they help people with special needs find jobs after college. Once I graduated with an Associate's Degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences, it was time to find a job. My mom worried about me. I struggled with communicating with people and needed a lot of help having conversations. With the help of a book on interview questions and their expertise, Compass really helped me learn how to communicate better and present myself properly to an employer. This took a lot of hard work and practice, but Compass knew when I was ready for my first job interview. Read Kristen's full speech here.
