What We Advocate For

In 1995, the year ABCD was founded, New Jersey served more people with developmental disabilities in state institutions than almost every other state in the country.

20 years later, person-centered thinking has transformed the New Jersey system of care. Here is an individual. What do they want to achieve in their life? What can we do to help them achieve it?
