JESPY House is a one-of-a-kind program in New Jersey (and one of less than a dozen similar programs throughout the U.S.). JESPY House serves adults with learning disabilities who traditionally would have gone to group homes or become lost within the mental health system.

Instead, the adults of all ages in the JESPY system receive training, skills development and vocational support so that they can become active and productive participants in the community.

JESPY House is a not-for-profit organization and a partner agency of United Jewish Communities of MetroWest NJ in Whippany.
