JVS helps adults with a variety of disabilities achieve long-term success and fulfillment in work and life by helping them become independent and more integrated into their community.
Individuals build their skills and become more integrated into the community through meaningful volunteer work opportunities at local non-profits. These activities also help individuals refine their work skills if employment is desired.
JVS offers community-based assessments, training and job placement services to help individuals assess their abilities, enhance their skills and successfully obtain and maintain employment. JVS also helps individuals who receive Supplemental Security Income and/or Social Security Disability Insurance understanding the work incentives program and how employment may affect their benefits.
