SJCS at work in D.C.

St. John’s Community Services has served the Washington, DC community since its founding in 1868. In the 1950’s, St. John’s provided the first community-based program for children with intellectual disabilities. Today, SJCS-DC provides comprehensive, community-based services for people of all ages with intellectual, developmental and other disabilities. These services support adults live, work, build relationships, recreate and participate in all aspects of community life. All of SJCS-DC’s services are CARF accredited.


SJCS provides the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people with disabilities and their families; to work for a highly recognized and well-run organization as evidenced by success since 1868; to earn competitive staff benefits, and to work in a collaborative team-focused approach to providing service.

There are currently no vacancies.

D.C. Services

As a community, we drive social change for all people nationwide, and continue to advocate for full inclusion of people with disabilities and other social and personal challenges into their local communities. We do this through assistance with access to housing, employment, education, healthcare and relationships. We open the doors to autonomy where each person becomes a strong thread in a woven fabric which supports and binds neighbors together.
