Our Impact

Although 2023 allowed for us to grow and serve over 700 individuals, we still want (and need) to do more.

As a youth and family serving agency, The Jacob Center has stayed busy in building capacity and finding ways to not only
support youth and families who are system involved, but also support non-system involved youth. In 2023, we found ways to branch out in different areas of the community, and to directly support more youth and families in times of dire

Our 2024 theme is “2024: Year to Restore,” and we are continuing to look at the common factors of youth who are experiencing heightened depression and anxiety, and to focus
on better understanding these factors. We are focusing our efforts on how to help youth with mental health support, trauma treatment, life-skills development and ways to form and hold healthy connections.

We thank you for joining us on our journey and helping us find ways not only to restore our community, but to also allow all youth and families to flourish.

With Love and Appreciation,

Erin Zeiner, Emily Brown, and Stephanie Magnie, Co-Executive Directors

“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.”
