ShareCorps-Perry Co. JFS-Agriculture Program Developer
Our mission at Perry County Job and Family Services (PCJFS) is to grow economic prosperity and opportunity for residents of all ages and walks of life. At the same time, we aim to increase the opportunity for stability, purpose and meaningfulness of life for all, despite economic challenges. Our portfolio of over 50 services, benefits, and supports gives us the ability and the responsibility to achieve this mission. For PCJFS, it isn't enough to fight poverty, we need to see it being defeated. Success in our mission through 2022 and beyond will translate into meaningful, measurable outcomes for our community. Success in our mission will mean that Perry County will become more broadly prosperous, earning relatively more income and experiencing less poverty. Success in our mission will also mean that we become healthier, families stay together, and older adults become better protected and less isolated.
