JRI Developing Abilities collaborates with individuals who have developmental disabilities, their families, state agencies and advocates to design, develop, and implement community-based, consumer-responsive programs of the highest quality. Our programs offer an array of innovative, personalized service options that focus on discovering and expanding people’s abilities.
We provide residential, employment, day habilitation programs, and individual supports in a variety of settings. Some of our adult residents live in staffed homes or apartments, while others have the opportunity to receive residential supports in their own homes.
Employment services allow people with a variety of needs and job skills to grow through job training, group employment and competitive employment positions. Our day habilitation services help people improve their daily life through community-based treatment activities and access to specialized therapies and innovative supports.
We approach each individual as a person capable of learning. We use a strength-based approach that includes individually designed and alternative approaches to developing and enhancing abilities. The individual is involved in the process of developing and learning the new skills and the behavioral repertoires necessary to successfully function as independently as possible at home, in work, and in the community.
