Mission and Philosophy

JESPY House is a nonprofit organization that enables adults with learning and developmental disabilities to achieve their full potential and lead independent lives. Our philosophy promotes choice, self-direction and independent community living for our clients.

We provide an environment where people with disabilities live and work together regardless of race, color, religion, creed, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, or ancestry.  Along with our clients and their families, we work to break down barriers (attitudinal, communication and physical) to ensure that our clients have opportunities for full community inclusion. In this endeavor, JESPY will:

  • provide support services;
  • increase public awareness about disability issues;
  • advocate for the rights of people with disabilities; and
  • provide our clients and their families with information and support so that they may make informed choices about issues affecting their lives.
