MOSAIC Awards


Recognizing Refugees, Immigrants and First-Generation Americans

Annually, JFCS recognizes refugees, immigrants and first-generation Americans who have made significant contributions in their professions and our community at the MOSAIC Awards.

Our award winners have made significant contributions in their professional fields and in our local and global community. To date, JFCS has recognized 67 refugees, immigrants and first-generation Americans who make our community richer and stronger for their work.

The MOSAIC Awards event helps JFCS raise funds in support of our work with refugees and immigrants. The funds from this event enable us to respond to community member needs and provide quality services that empower individuals to create better futures for themselves and their families.
