Support Coordination for Individuals with Disabilities

What is Support Coordination?

Support Coordination is a complimentary case management service for individuals found eligible through the state of New Jersey Division of Developmental Disabilities. Our compassionate Support Coordinators meet with individuals and their designated support teams to understand their needs, learn about their ambitions, and create tailored plans that will lead to a meaningful life. Support Coordinators assist in accessing day programs, medical supports, employment services, and social and educational opportunities.

Support Coordination strives to promote individual choice and community inclusiveness.

JFS of MetroWest is a State of NJ Division of Developmental Disabilities approved Support Coordination Agency.

Testimonials:

“When my daughter graduated, I did not know what to expect from the ‘adult world.’ We were extremely lucky that we had Maggie as our Support Coordinator. She is truly dedicated. Maggie constantly communicated information on funding and services, so I always knew I was making the best decision for my daughter. Maggie has her future at heart. We will stay with her as long as she’ll have us!” –Jeannella M.

“Life after 21 was a very emotional and challenging time for me. My son was graduating from the school district and I didn’t know what to expect for him as an adult. He was assigned Maggie M. as his Support Coordinator and that was the best thing that could have happened. Maggie was informative, dedicated and wholehearted. Working with Maggie not only made the transition to Life after 21 an easy process, it was well put together for my son’s personal needs. Maggie is truly a gem in this world that sometimes seems unfair and unjust to those with disabilities. She works hard to assure their needs are met. I’m truly thankful I’ve had the opportunity to work with Maggie.” -Aisha B
