In 2009, JFS took action to address the urgent community need for safe and affordable housing options for individuals with disabilities, seniors and low-income families. This vision led to the formation of JFS Housing, Inc. (JFSHI) a subsidiary of Jewish Family Services and the development of Deerwood Crossing Senior Residences, Bradley Crossing and The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Residences at Bradley Crossing Supportive Housing Community, a model integrated residential setting located at the intersection of Sherman Boulevard and Bradley Road in the village of Brown Deer, WI.
Our service model has been highly effective in promoting a welcoming and inclusive residential environment in which adults and children with and without disabilities can live together, develop meaningful relationships, and build a strong sense of community without stigma, fear of discrimination, isolation, or vulnerability experienced in community settings that publicly label and physically segregate persons with disabilities.
This model for successful integrated housing serves as a highly visible example to the community of affordable, accessible, quality living options that allows individuals with disabilities to remain anchored in communities with which they are familiar.
