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.

Employment Services

We empower teens and adults with disabilities, including autism, to find fulfilling jobs and long-term career success.

Therapy and Counseling

Through one-on-one sessions, our licensed mental health therapists can help diagnose disabilities—like developmental delays, learning disabilities, or autism—that could be contributing to challenges. We also provide ongoing emotional, behavioral, familial and social support.

Workshops and Groups

We know that individuals with disabilities and their families often need extra support. We offer workshops and support groups that cover everything from parenting to social skills development.


Today we marvel at how far Jeremy has come and credit JSSA’s counselors with contributing to a “toolbox” of strategies to tap into, no matter what challenges come his way.
