Planning for Adult Life is a statewide project funded by the NJ Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) to assist young adults (between the ages of 16-21) with developmental disabilities and their families in charting a life course for adulthood. We offer a variety of resources including Informational sessions, webinars, and resource guides/materials that address the following core areas:

  • Postsecondary Education/Employment
  • Housing Legal/Financial Planning
  • Entitlement Programs and Eligibility
  • Self-Direction
  • Health/Behavioral Health
  • Building/Maintaining Community Ties  
  • Friendships Planning/Visioning a Life Course
