The Jewish Association for Developmental Disabilities, a nonprofit, nonsectarian organization dedicated to helping people with developmental disabilities and their families, will hold its annual walkathon on Sunday, October 26, at 9 a.m. The walk, to be held rain or shine, will be at the Englewood Boat Basin recreational area in Englewood.
J-ADD serves more than 1,000 families in Bergen and Passaic counties. The agency provides respite care to families who have members with developmental disabilities living at home; housing for adults with developmental disabilities; and advocacy, community awareness, and holiday celebrations to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. In addition, J-ADD oversees the Fiddle Foundation Hotline, an online resource that links people on the autism spectrum with needed services nationwide.
All proceeds will help to fund J-ADD’s programs. For information, call (201) 457-0058, ext. 13, or go to www.J-ADD.org.
