Lack of inclusion in Jewish housing

I found Martin Raffel’s “Working toward full inclusion for people with disabilities” (May 25) interesting and informative, but from an inclusion standpoint it did not address the largest issue facing the Jewish disabled and the parents of these disabled adults. For us it’s the elephant in the room.

Inclusion in Middlesex County is a dead end for many Jewish, disabled adults when aging parents can no longer care for their adult children in their own homes, as the Middlesex Jewish community has not addressed this housing issue. Parents of disabled young adults are left little choice but to find Jewish housing for their children elsewhere. 

Inclusion serves little purpose when our children must leave their communities.
