Education and Support Groups
JFCS facilitates meetings with parents (siblings and grandparents also welcome) to explore the issues surrounding caring for a child with special needs. Topics include developing support, financial concerns as well as housing/living arrangements. In addition, topical workshops are offered as well, such as financial literacy and healthy lifestyle including nutrition awareness, tailored to those with special needs. Ttraining for professionals who work with disabled individuals is also provided through JFCS' Center for Special Needs.
