A Letter from the Founder

Founder Picture

Dear Friends,

Welcome to the SIXTH annual Hudson Valley Bike Ride!  Many of you will be returning to our Hawthorne Cedar Knolls campus for a sixth year on July 13th , and some of you may be learning about JBFCS for the first time.  I served as President of the Board of this great agency from 2010 through 2013, but first started out over twenty years ago, as a volunteer at one of our programs serving at-risk youth.  It has been an honor and privilege to serve this agency and help support the critically important work our staff do with people in need.  JBFCS acts as a safety net for some of the most vulnerable New Yorkers among us.  We’ve been doing it for over 140 years---providing mental health services, counseling, housing, and compassionate care to little pre-school children and aging adults, and everyone in between.

I decided to start this bike ride event to celebrate the work of this agency, promote the importance of both mental and physical health, and raise money at the same time.  I could not be more pleased with how successful the event has been. My hope is that we will continue to come together as staff, clients, trustees, and donors old and new to have fun, reach for a goal and make the world a better place. 

I look forward to meeting you on July 13th and thank you in advance for your efforts to help support this agency I care so much about.

Tony's Signature

Chair of the Board, JBFCS
