"The Adults with Special Needs program at the Mandell JCC is my life, and I love my job! Watching the people I work with form lasting friendships, receive support and relish life brings me so much joy. Thanks to the Federation's support, we are able to provide wonderful programs, classes and fun-filled events for this inspirational group. They truly have a place to call their second home."
