The Department of Human Services’ Division of Developmental Disabilities (Division) operates five developmental centers (centers) that serve individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Center residents have intensive needs related to their intellectual and developmental disabilities, and many also have co-occurring mental health, behavioral health and/or medical needs. The total cumulative census of all five centers is 1,238 as of February 2020. The census of each individual center can be found below.


The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the entire State of New Jersey, including developmental centers (centers). In its ongoing effort to ensure that center residents, their families and guardians are kept informed, the Department of Human Services’ Division of Developmental Disabilities has posted the COVID-19 Response Plan (CRP) that each center adheres to.

The CRP provides information on actions taken at the centers related to COVID-19. These include, but are not limited to: what has been done to reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection; protocols around screening of staff; how residents are isolated and cohorted; how updates are provided to families/guardians of center residents; how families/guardians can engage in virtual communication with a center resident if visitation is not possible. Please take a moment to review this important document.

If you are interested in the overall number of COVID-19 positive residents and staff at any center, please review our data dashboard. It is updated every week and can be found in the Developmental Disabilities section of the Department of Human Services COVID-19 Information Hub.

Please visit the web page for each individual center to find specific information about that location. If you have a question, please feel free to contact the Social Services Department of the center where the resident you are interested in resides.
