Jay’s Story

Jay’s Storydv cow pic r4i 3

“Years ago, when our son Jay graduated from high school, we found ourselves in a very challenging situation.  As parents, we were quite unprepared for what would come next for Jay.  The supports Independence Association (IA) has provided to Jay, and our family, have had a dramatic impact on his quality of life. IA has kept Jay safe and supported without one of us having to quit our job. It is his (and our) good fortune to be able to depend on the fine people and programs of Independence Association.  We are thankful every day for all the support they provide to Jay.”     –David Cowing and Judith Stafford

Independence Association is proud to have Jay in our family. His happiness and smile are infectious. He has contributed greatly to his community in his job and in his participation at the Y, the library and other community activities including Special Olympics. Thank you, Jay.
