Services For People With Special Needs

Case Management Services

The JFS Special Needs Case Manager provides assessment, evaluation, and monitoring of your family member with special needs to ensure maximum safety, inclusion, and independence. If needed, adult guardianship services are available through the JFS Personal Affairs Management program.


Events are made possible through the generous support of the following JFS endowment funds:
  • Ralph and Mollie Bartel Fund for Services to the Developmentally Disabled
  • Janis Lynn Kaplan Memorial Fund for Services to the Developmentally Disabled
  • The Socialization (SIMCHA) Group Fund
  • Dianne Epplein & John Patton Fund for Children with Special Needs
In addition, we are always accepting in-kind donations of funds, tickets, event sponsors, and inclusion with Jewish community events or activities. We welcome volunteers to transport disabled clients and attend social group events to interact with and assist our clients.
