The Staff of the JASDFW has made the decision to close our offices for the foreseeable future, in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak. We will be practicing ‘social distancing,’ and working from home. As soon as possible, we will return to work in our offices, but for the time being, should you need to contact us you can still reach us through our social media platforms and info@jasdfw.org. We thank everyone in our community for their patience at this time. Thank you and click here for more information, including which businesses in our area are still in service.
