Department for Persons with Disabilities (Oak Ridge)
Challenge Funds Available
With a deeply rooted sense of family, faith and community; and a commitment to excellence, the Department for Persons with Disabilities (DPD) provides residential, vocational, spiritual, and social services to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. Through competent and compassionate care, DPD empowers each person to become active, contributing, and valued members of their community, and to participate fully in life with dignity and respect. As a Catholic Charities Agency, DPD strives to end discrimination toward people with disabilities and works for social change by being a voice for justice and advocacy, and convenes others to do the same.
With over 8,000 people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in New Jersey on a waiting list to get into residential services like ours, the work we do is vital.
We must expand our services to provide more group homes, supervised apartments, employment opportunities, and community support for people in need.
In addition, we are in need of some repairs, renovations and enhancements to our current programs.
