Help ensure that the All Kids Covered Program is implemented in Illinois.
JCB is sad to announce the passing away of Ken Jacobson, the Director of our Goodman Child and Adolescent Institute. For the past 18 years Ken served in many leadership roles at JCB. His efforts to develop innovative models for training clinical social workers; his published work to introduce drawing as a technique to assess and treat patients; and his insights into human nature made Ken a remarkable social worker and administrator. His impact was
great and his loss will be felt by many.
The family has designated JCB as one of the places for contributions in Ken's memory. We have set up the Ken Jacobson Memorial Fund to support projects that were important to Ken. If you are interested in contributing in Ken's name, please make a check payable to JCB, with a designation for that fund, and mail it to JCB, 216 West Jackson, Suite 800, Chicago, IL 60606.
