JBBBS stands with the Black community in mourning the deaths of George Floyd and the innumerable other victims of systemic racism.

Our Agency has long believed in the transformational power of one-to-one relationships, and is guided by the principles of diversity, inclusion, and acceptance. We pride ourselves in celebrating and supporting people of all religions, races, ethnicities, gender identities, sexual orientations, and varied abilities. Unfortunately, we live in a world that too often does not feel similarly. We commit to taking action to educate and train ourselves – our staff, families and volunteers – so we can be better support people of color, the LGBTQ+ community and children and adults with disabilities.
