Enhancing the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities

The Jewish Union Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities. Through its numerous programs such as Vocational Training, Day Habilitation, Medicaid Service Coordination or Community Habilitation, JUF uses an individualized approach to help each person maximize their potential.

Changing Lives

Before coming to Jewish Union Foundation, Eli was asked to leave multiple programs and I was worried that there was not going to be a right fit. Despite knowing that Eli was having many difficulties, JUF accepted him and helped him achieve his goals. He is currently working at a job JUF found for him and is an altogether different person. JUF helped shape him into the great young man he is today!
