Success Story

imageAfter his mother died when he was just five years old, Jacob* went to live with his grandmother. At 63, widowed, and her only child deceased, Bonnie* was not quite sure what to make of her new life. Jacob was also confused. He threw frightening tantrums that involved biting and kicking. He never wanted to be alone. He began to push and hit children in his kindergarten. Bonnie knew she needed professional help, so she reached out to JFS. Bonnie and Jacob were assigned a case manager and each received counseling. Jacob was not only grieving but suffering intense anxiety. Through family and individual counseling, Bonnie came to understand Jacob's difficult behaviors and learned how to support him. Jacob learned coping mechanisms and that he could trust his grandmother.

"JFS gave me my grandson back. Our lives look different and it's not easy, but I know JFS will be there to help us through each new challenge."
