News & Events

Each year The Arc of New Jersey holds an awards celebration which honors the best in individual, organizational, and corporate support for people with developmental disabilities and their families. Nominations come in from all over the State, highlighting the exemplary work of dozens of individuals and organizations. Unfortunately, we were unable to hold our Awards Celebrations for the past 2 years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, we are thrilled to be returning to an in-person event this year.
