Jewish Family and Children’s Service (JFCS) provides behavioral health services and medical care to children and families in Arizona with a wide variety of programs including counseling, trauma assessment and treatment, child crisis intervention and rehabilitation, support for victims of domestic violence, substance abuse treatment, and more. Sojourner Center is a residential program for women and children affected by domestic violence in Arizona. In 2017, Sojourner Center approached JFCS to propose a merger in order to ensure the continuation of Sojourner Center’s services. Recognizing that a merger would result in a full continuum of services for victims of domestic violence, including crisis shelter, transitional living, and support services, JFCS agreed to merge. The Lodestar Foundation provided a grant to help fund one-time costs of the transaction.
