“The [Jacob Center] team just gets it. They show up in a nonjudgmental way to help us step back, rest, and problem-solve. I don’t know how we could do this work without them.” — Foster Parent
“The emotional calm and grounding that is created when you know that someone’s in your court and they know what is going on…. and that they will drop everything to come and help you in the moment that is the most out of control, the most emotional, the most painful part of your week. Not only does [The Jacob Center] support our child through that, but they support us.” — Foster Parent
