I am the parent of a 32 year old developmentally disabled young woman who lives in one of the group homes run by WJCS. My husband and I are beyond grateful for the staff of WJCS and particularly the staff at her group home at Hudson Terrace. It is truly like a family who care so deeply for our daughter and all of the young women in the home. No matter what medical or behavioral issue that comes up regarding my daughter, the staff handles it quickly and professionally. We feel blessed that our daughter loves in such a wondering place.

My daughter is autistic and has always been socially inappropriate with her peers. She only wanted to be with adults (our family and friends) and was with us 24/7. She had a lot of difficulty keeping herself busy and so she shadowed me whenever she wasn't in school, etc. Finding WJCS changed our lives tremendously. She got involved with their special needs groups and eventually at age 23 moved into a new group home with 5 other young woman her age that she knew for a long time. The staff of the Community Residential Services program was truly phenomenal in helping us put this group home together. The staff at the house is seriously beyond wonderful-extremely caring and supportive of all of the residents. I feel blessed that my daughter is living in such a warm, caring environment with so many wonderful people working with her. She is doing better than I could have ever imagined! Thank you WJCS.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Everyone who works with my daughter has helped far beyond our expectations. For example the manager and nursing staff are incredible. My daughter also has Type I diabetes and a lot of medical issues, but the staff is always on top of all the problems she encounters.

There isn't anything I would change. I only wish there was a way for the staff to be paid more.
