JTA Cares


JTA Cares is an employee-driven initiative designed to plan, organize and coordinate support throughout the JTA for year-long charitable, community-focused and sustainable activities. Through strengthening existing partnerships and looking for new opportunities to serve our community, we hope to engage employees and strengthen JTA's corporate social responsibility footprint in the community. 

Career Closet

Thursday, September 13, 2018 marked the grand opening for the JTA Cares Career Closet at the Sulzbacher Village, which provides for 70 permanent units and additional short term housing in Springfield for formerly homeless women, families and female veterans. 

The Career Closet, an initiative developed by the JTA Cares Social Responsibility Team, focused on providing a free boutique loaded with dresses, suits, jackets, slacks, purses, shoes and jewelry on site for the ladies. As one speaker noted, "as these ladies begin their life altering transformations, when you look good, you feel good about yourself.”

JTA Cares Career ClosetFollowing the ribbon-cutting ceremony led by CEO Nat Ford Sr., more than 50 Sulzbacher Village residents shopped for outfits, received valuable information about current job openings at the JTA and tips for job hunting. They also enjoyed refreshments.

The Career Closet will be an on-going partnership providing JTA employees an opportunity to give back to those in need. 

JTA Cares Packages

JTA Cares Package for Military Spouses and ChildrenThe JTA Cares team looks after the families of our employees! Each year, for our employees, we provide care packages to freshman students living away from home and/or their deployed spouse or children. This is a small way to say "Good luck" and "Thank you" to these important extended members of the JTA family.
