To provide assistance to members of our community that are seeking services, NJACP has redesigned its website to include all of its member agencies. Beyond the list of providers, the public may sort by county, by service, by city, by types of living arrangements, by specialist on staff among other categories to identify potential providers of services for their loved ones. Upon finding an agency of interest, a click on its logo will lead right to the organization’s website. NJACP welcomes feedback and should there be additional information that would be of interest and value in the search process, please contact Rose Tolentino at firstname.lastname@example.org.

In a July 19 Editorial in the STAR LEDGER, there was yet another call to keep people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in state institutions. This perspective, unfortunately, is driven by an assumption that individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) are only safe in a congregate setting accompanied by a presumption that individuals with I/DD are not capable of functioning in the community. But those of us in the advocacy and provider community, who work or live with people living with I/DD, know that there is ability in disability. Individuals’ desire to have lives filled with social interaction, learning, recreation, and work – among their ‘able’ peers.
A recent OLS audit, which reviewed the care of people with I/DD who moved from the developmental centers into the community included findings that have some suggesting that the state reconsider its policies on community living. This would be unwise on so many levels. A settlement with Disability Rights New Jersey requires people with disabilities to be served and supported in the least restrictive, integrated setting. While New Jersey has made great strides in integrating people in the community, we remain one of the states with the lowest percentage of transitioning individuals from developmental centers to the community.
There are no upcoming events.

There are many advantages in becoming a member of the New Jersey Association of Community Providers.
On July 5, 2016 Oaks Integrated Care and Preferred Behavioral Health Group announced their plan to affiliate in October of 2016. The affiliation unifies two private, nonprofit health and social service agencies dedicated to serving children, adults and families living with a mental illness, addiction or developmental disability. Oaks provides programs in 9 New Jersey counties and Preferred Behavioral Health Group covers 8 counties with a primary focus in Monmouth and Ocean counties.
The new partnership brings together two clinically strong, financially healthy organizations with a shared mission of improving the quality of life for individuals and families. Affiliating will allow the organizations to expand geographically, strengthen service delivery and maximize efficiencies. Most importantly, the affiliation brings the opportunity for growth, giving more people access to compassionate, quality care.

SUPPORT H.R. 5902
Contact your Member of Congress and ask for support for HR 5902, the Disability Community Act of 2016. Its goal is to increase Medicaid funding for providers so they comply with the DOL Overtime Exemption Rule before its implementation on December 1, 2016, as well as other federal mandates such as the HCBS settings rule and the companionship rule.
