Dear BOND Scholarship Committee:


JFS is pleased to inform you that we have a formal partnership with JFCS Career Services under the United Way grant. JFC and JFCS are now working together to fulfill a common goal which is to help the unemployed and underemployed.


The BOND scholarship has helped us achieve this mission by offering our clients an opportunity to gain/improve their skills. Thanks to BOND, individuals and their families have benefited from the opportunity to obtain training for career advancement purposes.


It is imperative that our clients are able to offer employers skills and abilities that “stand out”.


Clents were able to obtain employment with competive wages and benefits because of the BOND scholarship.


Thank you to BOND for sharing our mission for help individuals and families with employment and training opportunities. We sincerely hope that you will be able to continue to help us.


Respectfully submitted,


Estrella Flores 

Employment Services Supervisor
