Raising Awareness for the protection of our children      


There’s a severe lack of counseling support in the Caribbean-American community for survivors of child sexual abuse. JIFFD seeks to establish at least one physical location to provide counseling/group sessions, and referral services. For a start, this could be as simple as the use of a facility/room for a block of time based on an agreed upon schedule.

To achieve successful outcomes both locally and international, the South Florida  Diaspora task force will focus on mobilizing community support, fundraising, public relations, and legislative changes. This issue of child sexual abuse is a worldwide problem, and one which affects local communities.  Of the thirty one Broward cities it is estimated that an average of two cases are reported per month, per city.  With this in mind I am prepared to support the NGD initiative as it addresses the problem locally and internationally” – Mayor Wayne Messam
