The Medford Ugly Sweater 5K is committed to raising awareness for this incredible non-profit association in our community that gives so much back to the kids within the foster care system. The purpose of the JCFPA is to benefit and improve the quality of life for children that are involved in the foster care system. The JCFPA provides meaningful support for foster, adoptive and relative families. We encourage and promote community awareness, work to improve education/training and communication between foster, adoptive and relative families and child welfare agency staff as well as other community entities. The JCFPA encourages recruitment and retention of foster, adoptive, and relative homes. We are dedicated and committed to enhancing benefits and programs made available to all foster, adoptive and relative families.
