Coordination of Services
JSDD participates as a founding member of the MetroWest ABLE initiative.
WHAT is MetroWest ABLE?
MetroWest ABLE is a network of community leaders and professionals that work together to advocate for and support individuals and families with special needs. Together we engage our families, synagogues and local agencies in creating a community that is accessible to all members.
MetroWest ABLE envisions a MetroWest community that is made whole through the active and meaningful participation of all of its members, with opportunities for access to every aspect of Jewish life.
Partner agencies participating supporting individuals with special needs and their families in the MetroWest community include Daughters of Israel, Friendship Circle, Jewish Community Center, Jewish Family Service, Jewish Vocational Service, JESPY House, Jewish Service for the Developmentally Disabled, Joint Chaplaincy Committee, The Partnership for Jewish Learning and Life.

Who we are
At JSDD, the expectations for quality extend beyond what services and supports may be available to what life fulfilling experiences are possible. Our philosophy supports the notion that there are no limits to those possibilities. We have developed opportunities over time through a dynamic process of establishing relationships with the agency’s residents and WAE Center members. Unexplored interests, ideas, prospects for learning, continuing education and creativity are constantly evolving and emerge as our remarkable staff and the people we support get to know each other and share experiences.
What we do
Ability is the focus of all efforts in supporting the men and women we serve. We are delighted and inspired each and every day by the insights, revelations and creative energy that emerges when respectful relationships for the gifts and talent of every individual are considered. Learning and creativity occur organically as people share themselves and develop friendships and help each other to grow.
