PASP provides routine, non-medical assistance to adults with disabilities who are employed, involved in community volunteer work, or attending school.

Personal assistants help with tasks such as light house keeping, bathing, dressing, preparing meals, shopping, driving or using public transportation. The number of hours of help that a person receives depends on individual need -- up to 40 hours per week.

This program differs from many other personal assistance services programs, in that the people with disabilities direct their own services.

PASP Advisory Council
The Personal Assistance Services Program (PASP), under the supervision of the New Jersey Department of Human Services, Division of Disability Services, is required by law to have a statewide PASP Advisory Council.  The PASP Advisory council provides a means for consumers to express opinions and views that will affect the quality of personal assistance in New Jersey.  The PASP Advisory Council is designed to review and evalutate the effectiveness of the program, and to make recommendations to improve the overall program statewide.
