Functionality First

A different approach to providing individuals with disabilities the opportunity to live their lives to their fullest potential.

Our Philosophy

The New Jersey Expanding Capabilities Center (NJ ECC) was developed by a group of women who came together with the mutual goal of providing the best experience for the adult special needs community. We are committed to nurturing the unique abilities of each individual so they can achieve their highest potential.

The NJ ECC is an approved DDD/Medicaid Provider offering a day habilitation program, servicing adults 21 and over with developmental disabilities to be as functional and  independent in their day-to-day lives as possible. 

Our program provides our clients with the opportunity to participate within their community gain knowledge and skills to complete day-to-day tasks, as well as practice and engage in social interactions and relationships. 

Clients will also be provided with access to therapeutic services, including but not limited to occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech therapy. These therapeutic services not only allow for continuity of care for our clients just recently graduating from high school, but continued opportunity to develop independent living skills.
