If you or someone you know is interested in receiving residential services from JFGH, the first step is to contact our main office.
During the initial conversation, we will obtain basic information regarding the individual in need of services and answer any questions you have about JFGH. Following this conversation, you will receive a packet of information including an application for services, a JFGH handbook and other JFGH literature. Once you have completed the application, return it to JFGH along with the $95 application fee. It would be helpful to include other important information such as a copy of recent medical exams, psychological testing, individual plans and DDA funding correspondences.
Your application will be processed and a confirmation letter will be sent. When an opening becomes available, you will be notified and invited to meet for an interview. Several individuals and their families will be interviewed for one vacancy and will then be presented to the JFGH Admissions, Review and Discharge (ARD) Committee, who will decide which individual will be offered placement. The length of time that an individual waits for placement varies. Preference is given to those who have been waiting the longest; however, it is more crucial that the vacancy meets the needs of the individual. JFGH sends out an update form every other year to ensure individual files are current. There is a $95 annual fee for all waiting list applicants. This fee supports the maintenance of our waiting list.
To begin the application process, please call 240.283.6000.
