This option provides shared housing, all meals, and extensive on-site support services in apartments and houses located in Brighton and Newton.

The monthly program fee covers housing costs, meals, and all support services including:
- Personal care as needed
- Healthcare coordination and medication management
- Social and recreational activities including regular Shabbat dinner
- Assistance with grocery shopping, food preparation, household management, making and keeping appointment
- Assistance setting and meeting personal goals, pursuing interests in the community, and maintaining healthy habits
- Supportive counseling
JF&CS can also provide a services-only package for clients who make arrangements for their own housing.
All residential clients are included in Jewish holiday celebrations and a monthly Shabbat dinner at JF&CS. Many residents also participate in Beyond B’nai Mitzvah, a warm and inclusive study group that has been meeting weekly for several years.
