Community Education

There is an adage that we grow through learning: At JCFS, we wholeheartedly agree.  

For adults who want to enhance their knowledge of issues that affect people with disabilities – working toward greater understanding, empathy, service and leadership – we offer community education courses on a wide range of topics.  Open to professionals, people with disabilities, and family members of people with disabilities.
