Residential Group Living Services provide six - eight adults with developmental disabilities the opportunity
to live in a supervised group home setting where they are taught skills to enable independence.
With over a 30 years history of maintaining high standards of care, JRDS provides a safe,
nurturing learning environment with 24/7 supervision
Funding Services in this area are funded through Medicaid on a per diem basis according to the level of care the individual requires.
Success story: A young man with developmental disabilities and a serious seizure disorder moved into on of the JRDS group homes at the age of 25. Here he learned to cook, clean, do his laundry, navigate the community, manage his finances, get along with others, and manage his health. After approximately 10 years of living within the group home setting, he was able to find a physician that located the correct combination of medications to control his seizures. After a few more years in the group home this young man was able to move into his own apartment with limited support from staff. He is proud of the accomplishments he has made in his life and is grateful to those who helped his dream come true.
