Individual Advocacy

The Arc of New Jersey Family Institute directs families to appropriate resources and provides assistance with navigating the service-delivery system. We offer one-on-one support and make sure families have the necessary tools they need to advocate for themselves.  

Systems Advocacy

The Arc of New Jersey Family Institute works to create change on the local and state level that will benefit all people with disabilities. This includes keeping our network of families informed about changes to the service-delivery system. In addition, we engage our families and alert them to ways they can participate in systems advocacy with our lawmakers.
