I am a former employee of JVS, and have enormous respect and admiration for the people who work at this agency. They really do "help people help themselves" every day -- whether they are providing healthcare case management onsite to clients with disabilities, resettling refugees from Darfur, preparing individuals with autism spectrum disorders for employment, offering computer and other skills training, or providing counseling and job placement services to unemployed workers.
JVS provides skills and services -- on a non-sectarian basis -- that allow their clients and families to live more more independent, fulfilling lives. They I'm very proud of my association with this high-touch nonprofit, and will continue to recommend it to friends and associates in need of its services.
