A Familiar Face to Welcome You Home

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

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

In NJID’s group homes the person-centered design 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.
