Mission Statement

Our purpose is to provide essential human services to individuals and families in times of need.

Description

Gulf Coast Jewish Family & Community Services, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) community-based, nonsectarian agency, providing critical help to Floridians since 1960. Each year Gulf Coast serves more than 40,000 children, adults, families and elders who have catastrophic medical, psychiatric, physical, developmental and emotional needs. The agency is known nationally and internationally as a leader in innovative programming.

Refugee Youth and Family Program - This exciting new program supports refugee youth to reach their highest levels of achievement through school and family support. We work to improve school success for refugee students, reducing dropout risk factors, helping youths successfully transition from school to the workplace, and improving the acculturation and preservation of the refugee family. Cultural and recreational outings, mentor and tutoring support, career exploration and development services are offered to eligible youth enrolled in the program. Families also benefit as we bring speakers to meet with parents to learn more about the Florida school systems, health and mental health programs, healthy marriages and more. This program is funded by a grant from the Florida Department for Children and Families.
