A Familiar Face to Welcome You Home

NJID’s Residential Services opened its first group home for adults with disabilities in 1981 and since that time the program has grown to include a network of more than 25 homes and apartments throughout New Jersey.

The decision of choosing a group home is among the most important choices which can be made by a family member. At NJID, a team of compassionate professionals with years of experience offers understanding, information and guidance on the most appropriate residential options available.  NJID has helped hundreds of individuals and families make wise decisions about community living including the successful transition of persons from developmental centers, family homes, residential schools and other residential settings.

In NJID’s group homes, the person-centered design of each service extends beyond medical supervision and accommodations. Each person is encouraged to participate in home life from meal planning and preparation to leisure activities and the entertaining of friends. The NJID approach is one of respect and appreciation for the unique qualities of every person.
