Jewish Family Services was recognized as one of six Milwaukee recipients of an ARPA grant for early childhood development, selected and distributed by the Community Advocates Public Policy Institute and Milwaukee County Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS) CYFS Division. This grant will broaden the capacity of in-school work with children and families, and prepare teachers for years to come.

We thank County Executive David Crowley and DHHS Executive Director Shakita LaGrant-McClain for empowering JFS to make such a big impact in the community.
