CES Jackson has provided support for people with developmental disabilities and acquired brain injuries since 1980.
Our goal is to provide programming, resources, and services to help these individuals make their own life choices while being valued, respected, contributing members of their community. Our annual operating budget is $1,700,000 and our fundraising goal for 2023/2024 fiscal year is $775,000.
Fundraising 2023/2024 Fiscal Year Goals
Old Bills: $100,000
Online Art of Love: $80,000
Town of Jackson/ Teton County: $400,000
Annual Appeal: $75,000
As you can see, a significant amount of our operating income comes from state and federal services funding. However, state funding has not kept pace with the increased cost of living in Teton County. Our 2023/2024 fundraising strategy includes more private donations and grants. These funds ensure our wages are competitive and our staff are paid a living wage. The staff are the life-blood of CES. 23% of CES clients have no family to support them. 38% of our clients need 24/7 care, 365 days a year. We rely on our staff to ensure our clients maintain their dignity and vitality. A U.S. household with an adult with a disability must spend an additional 28% of their income to obtain the same standard of living as a household with no disability. People with disabilities live in poverty at more than twice the rate of people without disabilities.
Unlike some organizations, we cannot simply close our doors to make the numbers work. Our clients have serious physical and cognitive impairments, without help they cannot function independently in our community.
Our Operating Expenses

CES owns and operates accessible, affordable residential sites for our clients that are staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We have an 8-bed residence, but only 4 beds are in use because we are short-staffed. We have a women’s-only residence with 4 beds. We have to turn away potential clients who have few, if any alternatives.
