“As a teacher in a Jewish day school, it is heartbreaking to watch a student struggling academically. I remember one student. His frown was permanent, his eyes never shone and his shoulders slumped. But, after a few weeks of receiving high-quality interventions and seeing his consistent progress, he transformed completely. This child developed a sense of confidence and pride, infused with motivation and purpose. ‘I can’t believe it,’ he whispered to me, ‘I can read!’ And with that statement, his shoulders lifted, his eyes twinkled and he permanently beamed. This is the most inspirational experience a teacher can ever be a part of.”

Over 4,700 children benefit from programs that identify students at-risk for learning difficulties and monitor their progress to help them succeed.

"Every Tuesday and Thursday evening, I eat dinner at Le Café. I've been coming here since the first night it opened, around Purim 2009. I like the food and the people I meet here, but my favourite thing is the volunteers. They all make me feel so welcome every time I walk through the door. Because of this community, I feel like my needs are truly understood."

Last year, Federation CJA served over 27,000 free, hot, kosher meals at Le Café to those in need, with 6% of recipients being children.
