Neighborhood Family Centers
Starting in 1993, JWB created a network of eight Neighborhood Family Centers (NFCs) to provide comprehensive, core family support services. Each site uniquely serves its diverse citizens and promotes the necessary protective factors that foster child well-being and strengthen families.

Services are easy to access, thanks to site locations in the highest-need neighborhoods throughout the county. Each NFC provides specialized services and resources designed to meet the unique needs of its families. While hundreds receive direct and ongoing services from their nearby NFC, hundreds more benefit from one-time workshops, classes, and annual efforts such as back-to-school events and free tax preparation through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program.
