In 2013 Avenues to Independent Living began providing Support Coordination services with the start of the Division of Development Disabilities (DDD) Supports Program model being implemented.
We are considered a "released" agency, which means we are capable of approving New Jersey Individualized Service Plans. This is beneficial in getting plans approved at a quicker speed due to not needing state review and approval for certain services. We now provide Support Coordination services to hundreds of individuals in Mercer, Monmouth, Ocean, Cape May county. Avenues is dedicated to a Person Centered Approach that focuses on the individual's interests, support needs, responsibility, and overall independence.
