Disability Program Services

The Tucson J is one of Southern Arizona’s largest providers of disability services. We offer an array of programming dedicated to our community of young adults with disabilities.

Taglit

The J hosts the Taglit Day Program, which provides a small supportive group of young adults with disabilities with a full-day program designed to explore, cultivate, and maximize each individual’s potential. By emphasizing wellness, social action, education, and fun, we work to meet each individual’s unique needs through a program spirited by Jewish values and communal harmony. 

Participants in this day program for young adults work on different projects that provide opportunities to practice fine motor skills, job skills, and independent living skills, and to express their personal creativity. 

The Taglit Day Program is split into two groups; Avodah (Vocation) and Ha-Ash-Arah (Enrichment). Our vocational program emphasizes life skills which promote vocational success such as mobility and transportation training, personal organization, self-advocacy skills, etc. Our enrichment program emphasizes life skills which promote increased independence in areas such as problem-solving, communication, community participation, etc.
