Yachad - Cleveland
At Cleveland Yachad, Everyone Belongs. Our mission is to enhance and advance the lives of those with special needs within the Jewish community.
Yachad, which means ldquotogethernessrdquo, is an inclusive group made up of individuals with developmental disabilities as well as high school and university students from mainstream schools. The group meets several times a month for a variety of social, educational and recreational events. Support for members and families extend beyond the social network. Yachad programs include weekend retreats, weekly dance program, holiday celebrations, and fun trips and outings in the community. The goal of our members, families, staff and volunteers is to engage in activities that will nourish a valued quality of life. We share a destiny and strive to help every Yachad member obtain personal and individualized goals.
From shabbatons, holiday celebrations and community events, Yachad is there! Our goal is to facilitate inclusion with our members, with the help of dedicated volunteers, into the community. We have weekly programs and work with schools, synagogues, youth groups and other organizations to ensure our participants are included and have a role.
