A Life and a Home Like Yours and Mine

Heidi Gallery Advisory Committee Members

People living in JSDD residences have hopes, dreams and talents along with a need for assistance and support. Like most people, individuals served by JSDD want opportunities to participate in the community as fully as possible. The JSDD residential program supports every resident in accessing activities and resources in their local community and beyond.

In JSDD homes, daily life and activities are organized to ensure safety and well-being while fostering a sense of family and encouraging independence. 24-hour staffing may be provided for those requiring it. During the week, residents might go to work, attend a vocational or day program or experience individualized community programs. Planning for evening and weekend activities, as well as holiday celebrations and vacations is done both individually and as a group. Individual needs, wants and preferences are always valued and respected.
