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.

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.
