Gesher Disability Resources (formerly Council For Jews With Special Needs) has organized support groups since 1985. Whether you are a parent, sibling, grandparent or individual affected by a disability, we are here for you.
Gesher staff meets with parents, grandparents or siblings of individuals with disabilities to offer assistance in a variety of ways:
- providing information and referral to resources within the Jewish and secular community
- advising individuals and family members about accessing government benefits
- hosting educational forums on disability related topics
- offering social events to include the entire family
Groups are formed upon request if a sufficient number of participants are available to create a viable group. The groups are led by professionals in the field of disabilities and/or counseling.
