Supportive Living Services for People With Disabilities

Supportive Living Services brings hope and a higher quality of life to people with cognitive disabilities. We provide skilled, compassionate, supportive living services for people with developmental disabilities, persistent mental illness and brain injuries. Services are available at an hourly rate. Limited financial assistance is available.

We identify and build upon the unique strengths of each individual, and those who receive our services are treated with dignity and respect at all times. Our services are informed and guided by the values of inclusion, family and the full acceptance and inclusion of people with disabilities in the larger community.

Supportive Living Services was previously known as the SAJD Supported Living Program.

More Ways to Get Help

  • Case Management

    Professional case managers work to ensure a person with disabilities has the resources they need to live in the community. Enhanced case management is characterized by very low staff-client ratios and frequent contact between case manager and client.

  • Practical-Life Skills Training
    Under the supervision of the case managers, instruction and support specialists provide coaching and assistance to those who need help maintaining their homes. The focus is on teaching individuals the specific skills that they need to remain as independent as possible in their own homes.
  • Non-Medical Home Care

    Supportive Living Services operates as the licensed, in-home care division of Jewish Family Service. Under this license, we provide homemaker/chore services and leisure support to those who need support and assistance to complete these tasks themselves.

  • Sha’arei Tikvah Celebrations for All

    Sha’arei Tikvah Celebrations for All are inclusive, accessible, community-wide and suitable for all ages. They grew out of a need for holiday events that were meaningful for individuals with cognitive disabilities, as well as their families and friends. Sha’arei Tikvah has developed into an integrated, welcoming community that prays and celebrates together.

    Sha’arei Tikvah events take place four times a year:

    • Rosh Hashanah Service
    • Chanukah Celebration
    • Purim Celebration
    • Summer Shabbat Experience


    JFS partners with Temple De Hirsch Sinai and Temple B’nai Torah for Sha’arei Tikvah programs that:

    • Are led by Cantor David Serkin-Poole of Temple B’nai Torah, Rabbi Aaron Meyer of Temple De Hirsch Sinai, JFS staff and special guests.
    • Draw from all the major Jewish denominations.
    • Provide kosher, catered snacks.
    • Provide volunteer opportunities for people of all abilities.
    • Are very experiential, including music, art, dancing and more, as well as traditional liturgy.
