Choices, Goals, and Rights
The consumers we serve choose where they live. They direct their personal schedules and decide how they will spend their leisure time.
We encourage our consumers to participate in their communities. We facilitate interaction with other community members and help create connections.
We help people with disabilities develop and maintain relationships with family, friends, and neighbors who provide natural supports to the individual.
We help with setting and achieving personal goals.
We advise persons with disabilities of their rights and encourage them to exercise their rights. We help provide opportunities for due process when those rights are limited or abused.
We treat persons with disabilities with dignity and respect. We maintain their personal information in confidence and provide consumers space and time to be alone.
Advancing Opportunities offers supported living and supervised apartment options for men and women with developmental disabilities.
We can advise you on how to obtain support from many resources, including the NJ Division of Developmental Disabilities, the NJ Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, Medicaid, and others.
