St. Johns Community Services
- St. John's Community Services, a non-profit, non-sectarian human service agency, supports children and adults with intellectual, developmental and other disabilities.
- SJCS's “support without walls,” activist approach, enables people to fully participate in and become contributors to the communities of their choice.
- SJCS and its subsidiary organizations in the District of Columbia, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Virginia, is committed to full citizenship and equal rights for people with disabilities.
- St. John's Community Services is about people and building relationships.
- It is our purpose to create strong relationships throughout our communities, with our staff, with our volunteers and with everyone with whom we come in contact to best serve people with disabilities.
- SJCS envisions building better communities to build opportunities for people with disabilities to be valued citizens.
- Building one community at a time, we support people with disabilities to develop a lifelong network of friends, employers, teachers and peers, so that St. John's Community Services may become less needed.
