Founded as a Jewish orphanage in 1868, Bellefaire Jewish Children's Bureau has evolved into one of the nation's leading providers of child welfare and behavioral healthcare for children, youth and their families. Capitalizing on the richness of experience, stability and a legacy of success, Bellefaire JCB has been able to grow with the ever-changing needs of America's children.
By 1948, Bellefaire JCB had grown to include The Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters Association, JDN Early Childhood Center and a number of community-based group homes. These associations and mergers laid the foundation for today's diverse service agency - providing an array of services that includes in-home counseling, foster care, secure residential treatment, adoptions, independent living, preschool, and multi-site community clinics.
As a charter member of the Child Welfare League of America, Bellefaire JCB helped pioneer new psychological treatments for emotionally disturbed children. Today, Bellefaire JCB is pioneering new treatments for children with autism, as well as providing school and community-based interventions for children with behavioral health problems.
Our commitment to meeting current needs with an appropriate array of services; our historical involvement with research and education; and our Board's commitment to the vision: Helping Children and Preserving Families, enables Bellefaire JCB to be one of the Nation's flagship child and family service agencies.
Bellefaire JCB is an innovative organization that provides exceptional care and advocacy to enhance the emotional, physical and intellectual well being of children, young adults, and families in the Jewish and general communities. In addition to providing direct services, Bellefaire JCB is committed to:
- remaining on the forefront of the youth service and child caring fields
- responding to emerging needs and
- building knowledge which contributes to service to children, youth and their families.
Bellefaire JCB provides its services without regard to race, religion, sex or national origin, and encourages all clients to develop positive identification with their religious and ethnic backgrounds.
