Philadelphia Independence Network (PIN)

JEVS Philadelphia Independence Network (PIN) provides young adults with disabilities the freedom to learn, experience and achieve their life’s goals. PIN is a supported independent living community in Narberth, Pa., a suburb of Philadelphia that offers a variety of activities and opportunities for members to lead fulfilling and productive lives. Each member, along with family members, work with staff to set his/her own goals and identify interests and needs. The ongoing supports and resources provided by PIN helps individuals as they work through challenges of being independent, while improving life skills, social skills, recreation skills, and work skills. Most of all, members are encouraged to make choices that help them improve their lives and build self-reliance and self-esteem.

"The staff at PIN has helped me to come up with tools and strategies that I can use on the job from day to day. PIN 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."
