JCL’s core values are simple [and not negotiable]. The men and women
with developmental disabilities that JCL supports participate in and
contribute to all aspects of community life, strengthened by
support from family, friends, neighbors and fellow citizens.
Therefore, JCL is dedicated to seeing that the individuals
we support are encouraged and empowered to live their lives to their
fullest potential, experiencing all the benefits and opportunities any
one of us can access and enjoy.
values equality, respect and fairness in all of our interactions and
we strive to achieve the highest standards of quality in our programs.
In return, we believe our community responds with acceptance, welcoming
our men and women into their homes, workplaces, community centers, synagogues
and churches, medical offices, and restaurants — something that a generation
or two ago was not nearly as likely to happen.
Thank you to all of our families for trusting in us, our employees for
journeying with us, our donors for supporting us, our community partners
for embracing us and to the complete strangers we encounter along the
way for walking toward us, not away from us.
JCL serves all faiths
JCL provides a unique resource for Jewish families who have a family
