Children's Home of Jefferson County- Our commitment to children includes providing new opportunities for their growth and success. Funds raised at this year’s event will benefit our Community Based Programs. To avoid out-of-home placement of children and to safely maintain them in their current homes, our Caseworkers work closely with families and in partnership with Jefferson County Department of Social Services. They focus on assisting families in identifying goals and strengths and developing plans to help the families reach them successfully. Many times these plans include referrals to services within the community to help the families create stability and safety in their lives and the lives of their children.
