Collaborations with community partner agencies will support J-HAP programming, outreach, involvement and religious goals. J-HAP will partner with local Jewish and secular organizations to reach the goal of including individuals with disabilities into the existing community and bringing the outside community into their lives.
At this time, J-HAP has commitments from several corporate partners to offer in-kind, fee-for-service, and/or client referrals and support, including Minneapolis Jewish Federation, Jewish Family & Children Services, Sabes Jewish Community Center, Sha’arim, executives at local housing providers for individuals with disabilities, Hennepin County, building developers, leadership at other local large housing projects, as well as executive leadership at local synagogues and secular disability advocate organizations.
Families want peace of mind to know that there is a welcoming place where their adult child’s Jewish identity can continue to thrive. And, when those family members are no longer around, the community will provide security and a Jewish lifestyle for their adult children, just as we do for our aging parents.
