Last week, I had the pleasure of traveling with a family member of one of our most generous family foundations. JCADA now sees over clients a month at its non-disclosed office location. In the last year alone, JCADA served individuals through its helpline and counseling services and educated approximately 2, youth, parents and educators about healthy relationships. For four decades, the Misler Center has been providing stimulating activities, socialization and nursing supervision for older adults with physical, cognitive or emotional challenges.
As young people, we delighted in passwords and vocabulary that only our best friends understood. We invented secret codes and used them to pass messages that nobody else could read. Some of us liked code-making and code-breaking so much that we became cryptologists as adults.
