Real Life Choices

What is Real Life Choices?

Real Life Choices is New Jersey Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) new program to give support to people who live in their own homes.  With Real Life Choices, individuals and their families are given budgets based on their needs and with the help of a plan coordinator they choose the services and supports that best fit their unique situation.

The vision of Real Life Choices is to create a system where individuals with developmental disabilities and their families are empowered to make their own choices about where they want to go, what they want to do and how best to utilize the services necessary to get them there.  Success is determined on the attainment of personal outcomes that are important to the individual.
