Kudos to JACS

The Jewish Board of Family & Children's Services' JACS (Jewish Alcoholics, Chemically dependent persons, and Significant others) was recently touted in a local paper for its sober Birthright trips to Israel.
Sharon Darack, the program director, was interviewed for the story and explained how the sober Birthright trips began and why they are so important.
Birthright Israel is meant to make people fall in love with Israel.
There is nothing hidden about the goal, and most of the time it works. It offers its 18- to 26-year-old participants a free trip that engages all their senses, engages their emotions, and very often captures their hearts. It accomplishes its task in a whirlwind of sights, sounds, smells, tastes, colors, and experiences, often fueled with the short-term rush of adrenaline rather than the longer-term comfort of sleep.

Jewish Family & Career Service of Atlanta has expanded its psychoeducational evaluation services, a program of JFCS' Child & Adolescent Services - Tools for Families division, to be able to serve more students and their families.
Psychoeducational evaluations often are requested by schools or parents when there is a question about a child's learning style or social, emotional or behavioral functioning. Evaluations can help determine whether this is a learning disability, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or other concern that may be getting in the way of a child's capacity for learning. It can also help to identify a student's strengths and weaknesses, and provide recommendations regarding next steps to help a student succeed to his or her potential.
JFCS' psychoeducational evaluation team is delighted to welcome Dr. Amy Kincheloe (right) and Dr. Sarah Levy (far right). Both Dr. Kincheloe and Dr. Levy have a warm and engaging style that helps families and students quickly feel at ease in the evaluation process.
