Job Discovery Inc. (JDI) was established and incorporated in 1988 to provide quality and reliable supported employment services for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Fairfax County, Virginia. In 1989, JDI opened its first group home in Arlington County, Virginia to two individuals who had not experienced a full array of living in the community. The goal for JDI was to serve and maximize each individual's abilities and learning potential through community based employment, vocational and residential opportunities. In 1992 JDI offered day support opportunities as well as obtaining a vendor agreement with the Department of Rehabilitative Services. JDI is licensed by the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services and has full accreditation by CARF International.
