Dedham Savings Community Foundation Supports Jewish Family & Children’s Services
The Dedham Savings Community Foundation has awarded a grant to Jewish Family & Children’s Services (JF&CS). The funds will be used for improvements and renovations to the building that houses their day and employment programs for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Canton. In addition to creating a safe and attractive space for current and future clients, the repairs will also help JF&CS attract more clients to their programs.
