When the doors opened to Brother James Court in October, 1975, there were 65 residents, from 17 to 51 years of age. In 2010, 35 of those residents have remained with us. Our population has grown to 91 men from 18 to 84 years of age. Today’s minimum age for admission is 18.
BJC employs more than 50 trained direct care staff who serve as teachers to our men, assisting them in programs to help them fulfill their highest potential in life skills. Our DSP (Direct Service Provider) staff consists of certified developmental disability aids trained in providing high-quality care to each resident of Brother James Court. DSP staff, with the training and assistance of our Residential Service Director and QIDP (Qualified Intellectual Disabilities Professional) staff, monitor the men’s progress throughout the course of each day.
All of our residents are empowered with skills in hygiene, self-medication, communication, home community, personal care and various domestic skills.
