Judith Creed Horizons for Achieving Independence
Judith Creed Horizons for Achieving Independence (JCHAI), formerly Judith Creed Homes for Adult Independence, was founded in 1987 by parents of adults with disabilities concerned their children needed a caring environment to live as independently as possible. JCHAI has grown into a multi-faceted organization with innovative, inclusive vocational, social and residential options throughout Philadelphia and its four surrounding counties. JCHAI’s family of programs include our Supportive Apartment Program in Bryn Mawr and JCHAI At Home, our in-home community based services.

Sample classes: robotics, cooking, money management, blogging, self-advocacy, game nights, cultural enrichment, therapy dogs, dance, improv, exercise, and more!
