I was so honored to be able to join Sarah in September 2014 at the grand opening of JAFCO's Children's Ability Center, where we got to see Sarah and so many at JAFCO's work firsthand. I'm so thankful for her efforts on behalf of South Florida and its Jewish community.

As Women’s History Month comes to a close, I would like to take the time to highlight one more exceptional woman from Florida’s 23rd District.

Sarah Franco is the Director of the nonprofit organization Jewish Adoption and Family Care Options (JAFCO). JAFCO provides various welfare programs and services for abused, neglected and special needs children and their families in the South Florida Jewish community in the Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties.JAFCO fills a unique role in our community. We in the Jewish faith cling tightly to the notion of l’dor v’dor – from generation to generation. We are instructed to teach our customs and traditions faithfully to our children. When that isn’t possible – for whatever reason – JAFCO ensures that our kids know how to make Kiddush on Shabbat, and that they are able to share in the miracle of Chanukah.
