The Story

KC_PlayCenter

Meet KC!

KC is a 21-year-old young man who participates in The Jewish Foundation for Group Homes’ (JFGH) Robert and Sally Goldberg MOST™ (Meaningful Opportunities for Successful Transition) program and currently interns at The Jewish Federation. KC, who has special needs, is a wonderful colleague with a great sense of humor and a keen eye for detail. KC likes working at Federation because the staff are “very nice; very friendly.” When he finishes his internship, he plans to attend Montgomery College to continue his education, pursue a career and “earn more money.”

Thanks to Federation’s partners and supporters, we are able to support KC and empower those of all abilities to live with independence, dignity and inclusion. Click here to read more inspiring stories and explore Federation’s impact.
