What is JESPY House?
JESPY House is an extraordinary program for adults with learning and
developmental disabilities who demonstrate the ability to live
independently and gain competitive employment. Located in South Orange
Village, New Jersey, JESPY House opened its doors in 1978 with four
clients and three staff people. Today, more than 70 skilled staff
members are devoted to meeting the needs of more than 150 clients.
JESPY services include:
Every client in the JESPY program is assigned a case manager. As
clients age, services are adapted to meet their changing needs. Support
is available at all times, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Who is a JESPY Client?
JESPY House welcomes men and women, ages 18 and older, who have been
diagnosed with learning disabilities, neurological impairments and/or
perceptual impairments. Each prospective JESPY client is carefully
screened and evaluated. Depending on the level of their ability, JESPY
clients may immediately begin to live independently in the JESPY community, or they may first become part of the Residential Living
Program where they will learn the skills to achieve independence.
Although individuals of all faiths are accepted, Judaic principles are
maintained throughout the program.
