One Step at a Time is an awareness and prevention program targeting drug abuse in suburban areas. This powerful outreach presentation offers a panel of two parents who lost a child to addiction, an addictions specialist, a young adult in recovery, and a member of law enforcement.  This program is sponsored by Gregg Wolfe, in loving memory of his son Justin Wolfe, who lost his life to a heroin overdose, and the Camden County Board of Commissioners. To bring this presentation to your school, house of worship, or organization, contact Meredith Cohen at mcohen@jfedsnj.orgTell Me More


Through a partnership between JFCS and the Cherry Hill Police Department, This Life Counts engages tweens, teens, parents, and educators in important conversations about youth suicide and mental health issues. An alarming statistic reflects that since 2000, suicide rates for 10-14 year olds have doubled. Through TLC, a panel of experts provides awareness and tools for prevention, a discussion of warning signs and protective factors, and available resources for those who need help. To bring TLC to your school, house of worship, or organization, contact Meredith Cohen at

“Building Healthy Relationships” is presented to area public schools, houses of worship, and parent organizations to promote healthy friendships and dating relationships and to raise awareness of the dangers of abusive teen relationships. The program’s goal  is to educate teenagers about creating healthy relationships so that they themselves do not become victims or perpetrators of domestic abuse. “Packing for College” is a program designed to prepare college-bound students with the tools and knowledge they will need to keep safe when away at school. We also help to train medical, dental, and mental health professionals in our area to recognize red flags of abuse and provide resources. Contact Hilary Platt at to arrange a presentation for your organization.
