After many years in an
institution, Reva came to live in
a Haverim Horne. She has taken
a sheltered workshop job and is
in a job training program. The
JARC staff is working with her
to learn more about
independent living... cooking,
banking, budgeting,
housekeeping, first aid,
shopping, all the little things
that make up day-to-day life. It's
these skills that will help Reva
reach her greatest potential.

Help Us Save

JARC buys food in bulk to save
money. Plus, helpful supporters

Since we've worked with
Rachel, she's learned to use the
SEMTA Connector bus system.
Although she can't read, we
devised a special calendar, with
stickers and clocks drawn on it
to help RaChel stay on time.
Rachel enrolled in the Job Club
at Jewish Vocational Service,
attends the Probus Apartment
Club, and now has a growing
network of friends.
The latest challenge Rachel
tackled is learning to do her
own grocery shopping. Help her
continue to grow.

On My Own

Harvey's greatest dream is his
own apartment. He has a job
and he even knows who he
wants for a roommate. What he
lacks is knowing how to prepare
his meals, do laundry and
budget his money. It takes
approximately 6-12 months to
train someone like Harvey to
move into his own apartment.
