Mission & Vision

The New Jersey Association of Community Providers (NJACP) represents a dynamic community of diverse providers dedicated to advancing sustainable community-based services and supports that enrich lives and build futures for people with intellectual, developmental and other disabilities across the state.


“Broadstep NJ membership with NJACP has been heaven-sent. Especially for me as a new Executive Director, NJACP has helped me establish positive relationships with other providers. The membership has opened doors for me to be able to communicate with decision-makers at the state level. NJACP has also helped me navigate difficult situations with positive outcomes. I am so glad that we have this membership with NJACP.”

Emmett Highbaugh, Executive Director, Broadstep NJ

“NJACP has been a tremendous resource for our agency over the years. Whether it be an issue or question with something related to the State of New Jersey, the Department of Humans Services, the Division of Developmental Disabilities or reaching out to a legislator, we have always been able to call on the staff at NJACP to assist us. The CEO is extremely responsive and knowledgeable and advocates very well for member agencies in all arenas, as do all the NJACP staff. As a member, there are countless opportunities to network with other providers to share ideas and problem solve. I am also appreciative of all the membership benefits such as monthly membership meetings, committees and constituency groups, special events, conferences, workshops and boot camps offered by NJACP to support member agencies. The special events held annually that allow us to celebrate our service recipients and staff have been another added benefit to our NJACP membership.”

Joanna Miller, MNM, Executive Director, Department of Persons with Disabilities

“NJACP has been an incredible resource for our agency.  As a trade organization representing over 65 providers, the membership acts as a community united to provide quality services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  NJACP amplifies our advocacy efforts, offers ongoing trainings, webinars and subject matter experts on a wide host of topics to members, and creates connections between agencies that has proven invaluable through the years.”

Diane Hutton-Rose, Executive Director, 21 Plus, Inc.
