Aging Out Awareness Month (AOAM)

NOTE: All March events have been cancelled or postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. JEMfriends is commited to staying within state and federal guidelines and is postponing group events in an effort to do our part in the community. 

We hope that everyone stays healthy and safe and uses this extra time to rest spend time with family.

March is aging-out awareness month and we ask that you continue to give. You can support JEMfriends by giving through the website (go to our ‘Give’ tab) or through mail.

  • March 1st-31st
  • Keep your eyes peeled for ways to support JEMfriends throughout
    the month as we work to spread the word about aging-out in Idaho.  You can help us raise awareness by inviting people to our events throughout March!
