Chaverim is the Hebrew word for Friends

Our friends are a diverse group of adult women and men who represent a wide range of ages, interests, and abilities. We enjoy social, recreational, and educational opportunities throughout the year while cultivating friendships and maintaining our involvement in the community. As a part of the rich fabric of the JCC, we bring visibility and awareness for adults living with disabilities.

Looking for a sense of community, belonging, satisfaction and an active social life? Look no further than Chaverim!

""This is our son's first month attending Chaverim and we have never seen him so excited about a program that he has been a part of. He truly enjoyed all the activities that he participated in, especially Upstream Arts. He thanked us for getting him involved. This has never happened before! We are so grateful for the JCC and this wonderful program. "
