Over the years, a significant number of New Jersey residents with developmental disabilities have left New Jersey in order to receive the services and supports they needed in a facility out-of-state. Now, DDD would like to help them move home.


Through an initiative called “Returning Home New Jersey” (RHNJ), DDD is working with individuals who live in out-of-state residential facilities, and their families, to develop community-based residential options, services and supports for them in New Jersey.


Through Returning Home New Jersey, DDD would like to:


  • help bring families closer together
  • respond to requests and desires of families who want their loved ones closer to home
  • provide community-based, homelike settings for adults, some of whom have lived in institutional settings for many years
  • increase New Jersey’s ability to receive federal matching funds by providing care in New Jersey, which in turn will increase DDD’s ability to serve more people
