Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities Services (IDDS)

Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities Services (IDDS) is open to people of all faiths and offers programs and services that support individuals with disabilities, their families, and caregivers.

IndependenceWORKS (IW) houses our Community Access Group, aka the Day Program, featuring supported employment and a community integration program with numerous outings and activities. We also have community volunteers visit our center monthly to share their talents directly or through leading classes in cooking, yoga, music and gardening activities to enrich our clients’ lives.

The Zimmerman- Horowitz Independent Living Program (Z-H ILP) is a highly individualized living program enabling adults with disabilities to live as independently as possible in a 24-hour shared home or in their own home.
