The Federation’s Los Angeles Jewish Abilities Center is a resource that empowers individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) to access the tools they need to lead purposeful and meaningful Jewish lives.

Emerging from Poverty

We help those who are financially unstable, hungry, housing insecure, or need resources and tools to meet their basic needs and become self-sufficient.

Individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities

We provide individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) greater access to quality services and programs that enhance daily living and inclusion in our community.

Older Adults and Holocaust Survivors

We make sure older adults and Holocaust survivors who cannot manage on their own due to harsh financial, psychological, or physical conditions have what they need to live comfortably — and with dignity.

Experiencing Crisis

We help those who are dealing with a crisis — such as addiction or trauma — and give them the tools to become resilient. We also provide support and resources for LGBTQ+ community members.
