Narrative

JERICHO - Where All Are Welcome. 

 We exist to bring dignity, respect and wholeness to the lives of people with different abilities. Our goal is to provide information, connections and support to all who work with and support individuals, parents, families and even professionals as we all navigate each phase of life.

 In addition to our extensive social programming for adults with disabilities, we now provide programs for young adults 16-22, parent support groups and topic meetings, as well as a unique and innovative TRANSITION SUMMIT devoted to sharing a new process for all those involved with, and supporting children from 14-22 as they leave the public school system.

Our efforts for religious education and participation continues throughout all of Western Massachusetts.
