Check Out Jewish Family and Children Services of Combined Jewish Philanthropies

Here is a workshop up in Danvers, Massachusetts that would really benefit families with disabilities. Jewish Family and Children Services is a branch of Combined Jewish Philanthropies, and they do excellent presentations, very pragmatic and down-to-earth. They also have day programs and they create housing all over the state. Betsy Closs, who is leading the workshop, is a dynamo, who knows everything about housing for our guys. They are limiting the workshop to 12 so RSVP quickly.

Even if you don’t go to the workshop, you should consider contacting them to learn about their many helpful programs.
