The Jockey Being Family Foundation, is a nonprofit organization committed to helping strengthen adoptive families for successful futures. With generous support from Jockey International, Inc., we are supporting newly paired families in a time when they need it most – during the critical period following an adoption.
- We provide FREE backpacks to children in newly adoptive families personalized with the child’s new family initials on them. Each backpack includes a cozy blanket and a cuddly Jockey Being Family® teddy bear.
- Most importantly, parents receive a JBF parent tote with valuable post-adoption support resources to help them navigate through their adoption journey.
- We partner with leading nonprofit organizations to provide adoptive families with support and resources to help keep them strong, happy and together forever.
“Adoption is not an event, it is a lifelong journey. Families are brought together by many different circumstances and they all need extra help at times. We hope to be a guiding hand for families along their path, and we want to lead the charge in raising awareness of the need to expand post-adoption services.”
