The Cottage Campus of JCCA, one of the oldest and most respected residential treatment programs in the U.S., provides a highly protected and supervised environment for 200 vulnerable children who have emotional and family problems. In carefully structured programs, they receive the treatment they need to be reunited with their families or find new, loving families.

Lunch Bunch Program Volunteers will make monthly visits to these kids as part of a close-knit volunteer team. They'll get the opportunity to get to know the kids and facilitate fun activities and birthday celebrations for them. All volunteers must attend a one-hour orientation prior to volunteering. These are scheduled at the volunteer’s convenience.

Mission Statement

Jewish Child Care Association/Pleasantville Cottage School's congregate care programs provide a supervised, safe environment where 8-18 year old youngsters can work with staff and family members to resolve their difficulties and return home or move on to live independently.

Description

At all JCCA residential programs multi-disciplinary teams work together to develop comprehensive, individualized plans for each child in their care. Individual and group counseling, educational services and cottage living that teaches life skills all prepare our young people to return home to their communities or live independently. From the beginning parents and other important family members are involved in the process working as partners with program staff. Our young people are empowered to take responsibility for their own lives and futures
