Jewish Family and Children’s Services of Southern Arizona has announced that they’ve merged with Divorce Recovery, Inc. to offer individuals and families of Southern Arizona the support, guidance, and resources needed while going through a divorce or separation.
JFCS has acquired Divorce Recovery’s assets and resources, and the merged agencies will operate under the CEO and board of directors of JFCS.
“The merger with Divorce Recovery offers an exciting opportunity for JFCS to strengthen and expand our services,” explains Ken Goodman, board chair of JFCS, “And with the resources and administrative support provided by JFCS, we hope to expand the visibility, fundraising potential, and overall growth of Divorce Recovery.”
Craig Wunderlich, board chair of Divorce Recovery, also commented, “The board of directors and volunteers of Divorce Recovery, Inc. are very excited to become a part of Jewish Family and Children’s Services. We see this as an excellent opportunity to expand and improve on the services we have been providing for the past 40 plus years. Our board of directors will continue to serve as an advisory council for JFCS and that will allow us to share our experience and make for a more seamless transition to a larger agency with some fresh perspectives. We thank the board and staff of JFCS for their patience and perseverance during this process.”
Since 1941, JFCS of Southern Arizona has helped individuals and families in crisis, children and adults who have experienced trauma, people with disabilities, frail and elderly adults, and neighbors without basic necessities.
Clients come from all age groups, economic backgrounds, and all beliefs. JFCS’s mission is to help people of any religion or ethnic origin meet their full potential by restoring their well-being, cultivating self-sufficiency, and strengthening family life. These core values align with the goals of Divorce Recovery, and by uniting these two non-profits, our community members will have access to quality care, resources, and a wealth of knowledge about not only divorce and separation, but the overall well-being of individuals, children, and families.
