The Division of Developmental Disabilities assures the opportunity for individuals with developmental disabilities to receive quality services and supports, participate meaningfully in their communities and exercise their right to make choices.

Core Principles:

  • Ensure health and safety while respecting the rights of individuals
  • Promote and expand community-based supports and services to avoid institutional, segregated and out-of-state services
  • Promote individual choice, natural relationships and equity in the provision of supports and services
  • Ensure access to needed services from other New Jersey State and local agencies
  • Support provider agencies in achieving core principles
  • Ensure that services are high in quality and culturally competent
  • Ensure financial accountability and compliance with all laws and ethical codes
  • Ensure clear, consistent communication and responsiveness to stakeholders
  • Promote collaboration and partnerships with individuals, families, providers and all other stakeholders
