JEVS Independence Network

Philadelphia Independence Network (PIN) of Narberth, PA
Independence Network of Collingswood, NJ


JEVS Human Services provides individuals with the freedom to learn, experience and achieve their life’s goals through planning and support. Our Independence Network is a community of individuals who live independently in Collingswood, NJ or Narberth, PA. Each member, along with family members and/or advocates, work with staff to set his/her own goals and identify interests and needs. Supports are individually tailored and delivered to help people pursue their goals. These supports fluidly change as needed to address independent living and work skills, and develop community connections. Members are encouraged to take action and make choices that help them embrace independence, and build confidence and self-esteem. Most importantly, members develop strong relationships through building a circle of friends and a network of support.

"The staff has helped me to come up with tools and strategies that I can use on the job from day to day. The program has helped me to find the positives in job hunting, helping me to realize that one job does not have to be my forever job."
