Planning for Adult Life

Important Update - Please make sure to check out The Arc of NJ's COVID-19 Updates & Information page for news and resources impacting people with I/DD during this time. This is a challenging period, but our organization is here to support you as best we can in the days and weeks ahead.

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


Legal/Financial Planning

Entitlement Programs and Eligibility


Health/Behavioral Health

Building/Maintaining Community Ties and Friendships

Planning/Visioning a Life Course
