Events at the Local County Chapters
Advocacy With Decision-Makers
The New Jersey Self-Advocacy Project hosts events throughout the year, including an Annual Conference in the Fall and an Awards Luncheon each spring. In addition, self-advocates learn how to be healthy as part of the Healthy Lifestyles Project which is funded through a grant awarded by the Horizon Foundation for New Jersey. The program aims to provide people with I/DD with functional education about the importance of healthy choices related to diet, exercise and stress management.
Each year The Arc of New Jersey takes time to honor individuals, organizations and businesses that support individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.
