People Living With Disabilities
Life with a disability—whether your own or that of a loved one—may present a host of challenges. And the skills and resources to meet these challenges aren’t always easy to find or access. Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Greater Philadelphia takes a holistic approach to support and help individuals with disabilities and their families, in their quest to achieve stability, the highest level of independence, a sense of community and an enhanced quality of life.
We offer specialized support for individuals with:
- Developmental disabilities
- Intellectual disabilities
- Autism Spectrum Disorders/Asperger’s
- Co-occurring multiple mental health challenges
- Learning differences
- Social anxiety
Enrichment For Adults With Special Needs
Thanks to a generous grant from Bobbi and Harvey (z’l) Brodsky, we are also able to offer the B’SIDE program (Brodsky Support for Independence, Development and Enrichment for Adults with Special Needs). The B’SIDE program provides subsidized intensive care and support, as well as workshops to help teens and adults develop life skills needed to live independently, assistance to ease transitions, and group experiences to enhance socialization.
