Jewish Family & Career Services recently broke ground to celebrate the start of construction on its Dunwoody campus expansion.
Leaders from the community, JF&CS’ capital campaign cabinet and donors to the campaign attended the March 17 ceremony. JF&CS will be renovating and expanding its facility to improve services for all clients as well as to accommodate a growing waitlist for specialized services. The nonsectarian nonprofit completed an 18-month capital campaign to raise money for the project. The initial goal was $5.1 million, but it ended up totaling $6.6 million, thanks in part to a transformative gift from the Walter and Frances Bunzl Family Foundation that will name the new clinical services wing.
Jf&CS CEO Rick Aranson said last year the organization plans to move its program helping developmentally disabled adults from a space in a Chamblee office park to its Dunwoody location at 4549 Chamblee-Dunwoody Road.
The building will be renovated and expanded to include an additional 8,300 square feet of space.
