On behalf of all of us at John F. Kennedy Memorial Foundation, I want to thank you for being a part of our community.  We hope you and your family are healthy, safe and want you to know that together we can overcome all things. We are all in uncharted waters. COVID-19 is present nearly everywhere, and our community is no exception.  Although JFK Foundation offices are temporarily closed, we are working remotely, fully staffed and fully operational.

JFK Foundation has an important role to play by continuing operations to best serve our families, children and teens of Coachella Valley. Now, more than ever, our community needs us.  And we need you!
