JEVS Independence Network-Collingswood & JEVS Philadelphia Independence Network
PIN Points Newsletter
JEVS Philadelphia Independence Network is growing and there are many new developments. In August 2018, the program was officially replicated in Collingswood, NJ. The Independence Network of Collingswood now has 11 members, and another 14 applicants who plan to move to Collingswood to join the program. We have learned so much over the last year, made many new community employer connections, and new friendships are beginning. Between the two programs, we now have 39 official members!
Many PIN members have advanced in their careers, or experienced new employment opportunities. We are known for our active volunteerism and civic engagement. The members in both programs are positively impacting their respective communities through their contributions.
Over the last 6 months, both programs worked collaboratively to create a 3-year strategic plan. Members, families, operational staff, members of the JEVS Human Services executive team, and a board member worked for more than 4 months to develop this plan. We have a blueprint for action, and a very bright future that will continue to improve how we support members to pursue their best lives.
We invite you to schedule a time to meet with our team; connect with members and their families; or plan a visit to learn more about us!
