Community Living Services

Our Community Living Services Division provides homes for adults geared towards independence and an empowering path to a world of opportunity for the people we support. Our mission, since 1947, has been embodied in innovative professional lifespan services designed to meet every need and nearly any preference. From an independent living-style apartment complex, community condominiums to community residences with intensive 24/7 supports, Jawonio is there for the people we support, all day, every day, today and for a lifetime.

With program options that offer a full array of clinical, medical and behavioral health services, Jawonio brings an unparalleled level of clinical expertise to the lives of the people who call the agency home. Our commitment is to  person-centered approaches to meet the gamut of needs; from dual diagnosis, complex medical needs and service approaches that foster inclusion and community participation, sense of mastery, accomplishment and identity.

Located in some of the best neighborhoods in Rockland County, Jawonio residences are uniquely tailored to maximize the independent function and inclusion of our residents. With a focus on technology and innovation, the Salmon House, example, is a beautiful suburban home that includes a state-of-the art lift system more common to rehabilitation settings than a group home. Our staff is the heart and soul of all we do throughout the communities we support. 

Our Homes

Jawonio residential services are about choices. Learning and growing we believe starts with having options, knowing what they are and working with people committed to the process discovery that informs and ultimately empowers our participants to define themselves based on their own sense of who they are and a personal vision for the person they’d like to become.
