Every day, you can help change someone’s life 
Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate what we're thankful for, and if you're looking for a way to give back to your community, consider making a gift to the Families Supporting Families scholarship program. Last year, because of you...

  • 11 children enjoyed a well-balanced, meaningful school age child care program;
  • 134 families and seniors in the Akron community enjoyed exceptional services and programming at the J;
  • 24 children flourished in a warm and nurturing environment at the Mandel Early Childhood Education Center; and
  • 34 children experienced summer camp, learned to swim and played sports.

There are many more families in our community who need just a small change to experience a significant difference in their lives. Will you help change someone's life? Give back to Families Supporting Families.
