JCCA is committed to improving educational outcomes to children in foster care in our Foster Home and Residential programs. By providing counseling for young people in foster care around educational opportunities and supports, we empower them to see a successful educational career for themselves. Through staff, foster parent and parent trainings, JCCA equips adults in the child’s life to be strong educational advocates. Reading for Our Future provides more than 100 children in foster care in-home, one-on-one tutoring in specific academic areas. Now in its seventh year, the program is highly successful in improving educational outcomes.
The program is funded through a grant from the Robin Hood Foundation.
