Our Work & Guiding Principles for Jacksonville's Children

The Jacksonville Children’s Commission works with local nonprofit organizations to improve the health and lives of Duval County’s children. The Commission monitors its programs for effectiveness and outcomes. The JCC focuses on prevention, early intervention, and support programs for families and children 0 – 18. The organization’s four guiding principles are: Children grow and develop during out-of-school time; Children have stable, nurturing families; Children enter kindergarten prepared to learn; and Children get special help when needed. These proven programs reduce future costs related to special education, foster care, juvenile justice and youth incarceration.
