CARINGHouse Projects provides community based residences for adults who have developmental disabilities.
Established with one residence in 1980, the CARINGHouses have grown to include over 50 residences in current operation throughout New Jersey. Each CARINGHouse residence has been developed to provide housing and supportive services for four to eight individuals in a family-like setting. The positive, affirming aspects of this environment have enabled many of the CARINGHouse residents to transition from life in a state Developmental Center to life in the community, while becoming more independent in many aspects of personal care and life skills. Through the work of the dedicated and professional CARING staff, the residents are provided with opportunities for many more experiences and personal growth than would otherwise have been possible in an institution.
