Target demographics: Enable assists persons who have permanent or chronic disabilities. The disability may be physical or cognitive and it causes difficulties with communication, self-care, mobility or the ability to live independently. There are no age restrictions for services. We support individuals of all ages. However, some services have restrictions because of the type of funding received to support the service. Since we receive funds from the New Jersey Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD), some services are limited to persons eligible for DDD services. For DDD, the physical or mental impairment must be apparent before age 22 and be lifelong. This includes conditions such as mental retardation, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, spina bifida, autism and other neurological impairments. Special funding through the United Way of Greater Mercer County particularly allows Enable to assist persons who are elderly and those whose disability may be the result of an injury or of a medical condition such as multiple sclerosis, stroke or other debilitating illness. Enable does not provider service to persons whose primary disability is mental illness or substance abuse.
Programs: Our Services In-Home Services offer an individual help with cooking, shopping, errands, transportation, laundry and personal care in a person’s own home. Residential services through group homes and apartments in central NJ provide a home and supportive services by staff including 24-hour help. Accessibility Services result in home modifications such as ramps, wider doors, and stairglides that allow individuals to continue to live in their own home. Day Program and Day Supports allow individuals to choose day time activities that explore interests, skills and may involve volunteer and paid work. Respite Care, relief to family members who give round-the-clock care, is provided in a variety of forms, in-home or out-of-home. Care Management for persons who may have disabilities due to aging or illness, connects persons with a variety of services. Family Support Stipends are overseen by Enable for 200 families who receive State funds for equipment, assistive technology, summer camp or respite care.

I am the guardian of a 54 year old woman with Down's Syndrome. Patricia has been living in an Enable managed Group Home for 15 years. Enable provides her with a safe, caring environment. She is happy in her living situation which is very important to me. Because of the quality of the services that we receive in the Group Home, Patricia has recently moved to the Enable Day Program. I believe that there's an advantage to having her fully immersed in the services of Enable. The agency is providing services for her "whole self" which assures me that her potential will be realized.

Patricia's happiness. I have an open relationship with many members of the administration at Enable as well as the staff who work directly with Patricia. Her on-going happiness is my goal and so far that has been acheived with Enable.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
add more organized activities for the residents of the group home.
