Fight for the Right" Club - Empowers people with developmental disabilities
9 people are interested
Be a part of a club that helps men and women with developmental disabilites realize that they can give back to the community and make a difference! This club meets once a month on Wednesdays at 6:30 pm in Oak Ridge (Jefferson Township) NJ. The members decide on a cause they wish to support and devise a plan to get it done. This year they conducted a hugely succesful Mother's Day Gift Bag event which went to the young moms at Birth Haven in Newton, NJ, raised funds and collected food for the Jefferson Dog/Cat rescue organization and honored the Jefferson and Newton Police departments. It is an opportunity to help these men and women realize they are more than a charity themselves, but rather, have the right to give back and serve others as well.
About Department for Persons with Disabilities
1 Catholic Charities Way, Oak Ridge, NJ 07438, US
Consistent with the mission of the Diocese of Paterson, we provide residential, vocational, social and spiritual programs for persons with mental retardation and other developmental disabilities. We offer opportunities to become more active and valued members of society, and to participate fully in life with dignity and peace.
We offer ten group homes and two supervised apartment programs for adults with developmental disabilities. We also offer an adult training center for 55 adults and many of the people in our homes attend this workshop. All of our residents go to workshops each day and all have annual goals to work on both at home and at work.
We'll work with your schedule.
