Connections is a social and recreational program in a community setting for adults with intellectual, developmental, and physical disabilities in their twenties and thirties. Through social, cultural and educational opportunities both in and out of The JCC in Manhattan, Connections integrates independent and daily living skills and encourages participants to make and deepen friendships with each other.

Participants should function well as a group member and express their own desire to be in the program. Individuals in Connections have the ability to be travel trained between the JCC and home and utilize the program as a complement to their vocational and volunteer experiences.

For more information about Connections, please contact Hannah Badain, Coordinator of Connections, at
