The Day Habilitation Program provides a structured daily schedule of educational, pre-vocational, psychosocial and health-oriented activities for any JESPY client who is not involved full-time in volunteer or paid employment activities. In this scheduled program, participants build on their interests to help shape their individual performance plans for work readiness and employment engagement.

Operating from Monday – Friday from 9:00am to 3:00pm, scheduled weekly groups include:
Building Confidence
Social Skills
Health and Safety
Critical Thinking
Music Relaxation Therapy
Dance and Aerobics
Job Skills
Current Events
Money Skills
Physical Fitness Activities
Recreational Activities
The dynamic schedule changes approximately every three months.
Day Program participants work together to prepare a healthy, nutritious meal for their lunch which reinforces food preparation as well as social skills.
The Day Program is committed to providing opportunities for community integration such as volunteering at Our Lady of Sorrows Food Pantry, the Elks Club Garden and various Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ events throughout the year.
JESPY clients who are living at home with their families, rather than at JESPY-owned or JESPY-managed facilities, have only minimal exposure to daily living skills training. The Day Program has been expanded to include a comprehensive Daily Living Skills Program which prepares this group for successful independent living.
The Daily Living Skills Program operates at various times four days per week, providing focused training in:
Kitchen and Food Safety
Food Shopping and Preparation
Menu Planning
Laundry and Cleaning
Budgeting/Money Management
Social Skills Engagement
Community Integration
Community Safety

At other times, participants are welcome to join in the scheduled activities of the broader Day Program.
The JESPY Day Program is a qualified provider for the NJ Division of Developmental Disabilities Real Life Choices Program.
