Joining Forces for Families (JFF)
…a Partnership to Change the Way
Services are Delivered to Children,
Youth and Families in Dane County
to Better Meet the Needs of Families and Community
Joining Forces for Families (JFF) is a voluntary, community-based, supportive service that helps families address their basic human needs. By quickly linking clients to resources, JFF often keeps families stable and deflects them away from costly formal system interventions.
The JFF program encourages cooperation between agencies in caring for families. JFF uses the combined talents and resources of the Dane County Human Services Department, public health, county and local law enforcement agencies, school districts, human services organizations, and residents to support the success of children, youth and families in home, school and the community.
