Welcome to Jacksonville Children's Commission


Jacksonville Children's Commission (JCC) is an autonomous entity of the City of Jacksonville serving the needs of children and their families throughout Duval County. We partner with local non-profit organizations and sponsor a continuum of research-based programs to help ensure children from birth to age 18 have stable, nurturing families; are prepared to enter kindergarten and succeed in school; have support and guidance after-school and in the summer; and receive special help when they need it. The Commission works hand-in-hand with local nonprofit organizations, carefully tracking each program¹s effectiveness and outcomes.

We believe that by investing in the future of our children today, we can help to create a better tomorrow for all generations. That is why we take a hands-on approach to ensuring that children have a stable family life, enrichment programs and a chance to develop the skills they need to succeed.

Creating Solutions for Jacksonville Families


At Jacksonville Children's Commission, we work to create viable solutions for families and kids within the community. We do our part to make sure kids have the support they need to thrive. Our organization provides summer lunch, kindergarten preparation, after school care and many more services to make certain that children have the assistance they need.

Our mission is to support families in their effort to maximize their children¹s potential to be healthy, safe, and educated and contributing members of the community.

Our vision is to make Jacksonville one of the Top 10 cities in America for children to reach their highest potential.
