Funding for Day, Residential and Community Services for individuals with Developmental Disabilities is at risk. Find out how you can help.


  • Medicaid is a major source of funding for Day Services, Group Homes and Apartments and other Community Programs. Block granting Medicaid and caps will put the funding for these programs at risk. In addition the ACA's includes provisions that protect individuals with disabilities such elimination of lifetime caps, preexisting condition restrictions and the donut hole for prescription drugs. Advocacy to Protect the Lifeline for Individuals with Disabilities is needed NOW. Sign Up to get action alerts and the latest news.

  • Join us to learn about the NJ CAT Assessment and how it will impact the services you will receive. Also an opportunity to meet local day service providers. Free. Thursday February 16th. 6pm-8pm at Bleshman School, Paramus. Register at
