An Overview:

The New Jersey Division of Developmental Disabilities administers seven residential developmental centers (DCs). They are:

·        Green Brook Regional Center in Somerset County

·        Hunterdon Developmental Center in Hunterdon County 

·        New Lisbon Developmental Center in Burlington County 

·        North Jersey Developmental Center in Passaic County 

·        Vineland Developmental Center in Cumberland County 

·        Woodbine Developmental Center in Cape May County 

·        Woodbridge Developmental Center in Middlesex County 


The DCs are home to approximately 2,151 individuals. Residents have intensive needs related to their developmental disabilities, and many also have co-occurring mental health, behavioral and/or medical needs. The average age is 51, and a recent survey indicated that more than 80 percent of the residents have lived in a DC since childhood. Many residents are non-ambulatory and must use a wheelchair for mobility.
