In their own words, members of JEVS Independence Network in Narberth and Collingswood share just a little bit about their diverse interests, personalities, talents and accomplishments.

Getting my “Child Development Associate Certification is something I always wanted to do. I studied and worked really hard for it! I feel great that this is going to help me find more jobs in the future.

I have fought hard for everything in my life. Now things are on track, and I feel so successful.
– Aaron E.


Since getting my driver’s license I feel excited; it’s a really big accomplishment for me. I am looking forward to driving. I will have the opportunity to do so much more!
– Ryan S.


I’m proud to sell my artwork at events like Second Saturday. I’ve gotten to meet people from town who come to my table.
– Chris G.


I’m proud that I’ve come this far and really established myself in my new community. Before I moved to Collingswood, I did not think I would make all these connections so quickly and now I always have
someone to talk to and something meaningful to do.

I love my job at Penn Jersey Signs. I put vinyl markings on and put the stands on the signs. This is the first paid job I’ve ever had and it feels good to pay for things like my own groceries and household needs.
– Zachary S.
