Community Living

We want to help you explore what you want to do and be at any point in your life. Although we all have differing abilities, we all have the right to make choices. Self-determination is at the heart of Makom. While living in a Makom home, our goal is to meet you where you are and to help you on your journey to achieve your definition of a successful life.

You can expect from this program:

  • Dedicated staff, 24/7
  • Options for day programs, work and community engagement, such as classes and activities
  • DDA funded in MD and DBHDS funded in VA, with options for private pay and state funding
  • 1-3 people will reside in each home
  • Assistance, if required, with activities for daily living (ADL’s) which could include bathing, dressing, eating and mobility
  • Assistance with Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs) which could include grocery shopping, nutritional planning, household chores, money management, decision making and meal preparation
  • Kosher style homes
  • Medication administration and delegated nursing supports

We have housing options in Montgomery County, MD, and Fairfax County, VA. We value the insight and requests made by the person supported, starting with our admissions process. We’ll get to know you so that we can meet you where you are, and we’ll ask about your expectations. You’ll choose with whom (if anyone!) you’d like to live and what type of home you’d like. We take time to determine any medical needs or behavior concerns. With all of this information, we will work with you to determine the best fit to reach your goals and aspirations.

I love JFGH because I have learned new things, and I have met a lot of new friends.
