We Are One

Maxine Lipton

Co-Sponsored by Congregation Beth Achim

tein, assistant dean of the
Hebrew Theological College
in Skokie, Ill.; and Rabbi
Yoseph Abrams of the
Mesivta High School in
Cleveland. Also attending
will be Judy Abrams, NCSY
district coordinator; Yair
Zinn, NCSY regional
shaliach, and more than 20
advisers from various colleges
and yeshivot in the United
States.

Now that she's working
and earning money,
Maxine Lipton has some
plans . . . like treating
herself to a new hairstyle.
While that may not be
unique, it's quite a step
forward for someone who
spent many years at home,
watching television all
day. A mentally retarded
adult, Maxine's life has
changed dramatically
since she entered the
Jewish Vocational Serv-
ice's sheltered workshop
program two years ago. In
fact, Maxine has made so
much progress that she's
part of an innovative new
program that places im-
paired workers at jobs in
the community.
Supervised by JVS,
which also provides trans-
portation, Maxine works

five days a week during
lunchtime at Olga's res-
taurant in Birmingham.
She helps with salad prep-
aration, warming food and
clean-up. Her sense of ac-
complishment with her
Work is matched by her
excitement at getting to
know many of her regular
customers. The feelings
are mutual; customers
have given Olga's positive
feedback about Maxine
and her work. A
"graduate" of the JVS
workshop and its adult
remedial classes, there's
no place Maxine would
rather be than working at
the restaurant. That's
probably why she hasn't
missed a day of work since
she started.
The Agency.
The
Jewish Vocational Serv-
ice's new facility in South-
field and its downtown De-
troit workshop serve . more
than 7,000 people each
year. Offered are rehabili-
tation services, job place-
ment, career development,
educational counseling,
and specialized services to
senior adults. The adult
day program serves 220
developmentally disabled
adults; one of its goals —
currently being realized
through the supervised
work program — is to help
clients lead more product-
ive, independent lives be-
yond the sheltered work-
shop.
JVS receives funding
from the Allied Jewish
Campaign of the Jewish
Welare Federation.
