JSDD is dedicated to supporting a full quality of life in both the residential component and holistic learning program known as the WAE Center for individuals with developmental disabilities. Promoting a person centered, coordinated philosophy as we support individuals to advocate and express their desire for a full and meaningful life is at the core of the agency’s mission.
Our Chairs of Inclusion project celebrates the 10th Anniversary of JSDD’s Wae Center, representing the convergence of inclusion, expressive arts and community.
