JWB Children's Services Council Of Pinellas County
Social & Welfare Services in Clearwater, FL
The future for poor and working class families, as well as at-risk kids in our community is not at all certain. We need to expand community awareness and build community connections to keep kids safe and aid families. In 1944, JWB was conceived by a Juvenile Court Judge, an attorney, and a concerned group of specialists as well as private citizens who were unhappy with the lack of resources and services being offered to at-risk youth and families.
