Laws have changed in recent years to make portability easier for anyone who would like to move from one agency to another. Please contact us as soon as possible if you are looking to move your loved one into our agency.
You should contact the Division of Developmental Disabilities (800-832-9173 https://nj.gov/humanservices/ddd/home/) as soon as possible to get your child registered and evaluated. DDD will provide you with the necessary paperwork and determine the level of care your child is eligible for. You can then work with a Support Coordinator to find the right services and explain your rights and options. Every student under the age of 18 who has received services should apply for a Support Coordinator through DDD (NJ Department of Human Services Division of Developmental Disabilities) once they “age out” of their existing programs.
New Concepts for Living prides itself on putting the well-being of those entrusted to us first and foremost. In order to attract and hire the most qualified candidates for our staff, we offer a highly competitive salary as well as a thorough and on-going training program.

We will not tolerate anything but dignity and respect for those in our care.
