Many children, teens, and adults struggle with physical, cognitive, and developmental disabilities. These challenges make everything from connecting with new friends to finding a job more difficult. In fact, 70% of Americans with disabilities are unemployed or underemployed.
At JSSA we’re committed to seeing people for who they are – and this is the approach we bring to serving our neighbors with disabilities. Whether you and your family need support with mental health, care coordination, employment, or staying social, we partner with you to help build resilience, well-being, and independence.
