SHA Releases New Report:

Building the Foundation for Housing, Services, and Supports: Best Practices Opportunities for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

SHA conducted nationwide research to survey which best practices will effectively enhance the resources and navigation of the current supportive housing system. Research involved examining policies, funding, service delivery, training, and resources within New Jersey and across the country.

The result is a report that offers a description of applicable best practices, examples of implementation, background resource material, and specific recommendations for implementation in New Jersey. Deborah Wehrlen lead researcher and author drew upon the expertise of grant partners including The Arc of NJ, Autism NJ, The Housing and Community Development Network of NJ, and Autism Speaks, as well as local and national leaders. The research and report were made possible with grant funding provided by the NJ Council on Developmental Disabilities (NJCDD).
