THE STORY:

The Arc of Atlantic County helps people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) live the lives they choose. Our Case Managers are vital to their success. Your donations will keep their dreams alive and provide hundreds of hours of service to people with I/DD in Atlantic County. 


Case Managers assist individuals and their families to access support and services on their own. But every year it becomes more difficult to provide case management to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) because of budget cuts. People like Tim who struggled with health issues, housing and finances before his life was changed by The Arc of Atlantic County. 


Demand for Support Grows

Tim was unable to get the help he needed because he did not have documentation. After his family died and left him on his own, he was victimized by people who took his money and food. He was barely surviving when he finally found the help he needed at The Arc of Atlantic County.


 The Need for Case Management


With support from his Case Manager, Tim was able to:

  • Apply for and maintain his participation in Medicaid and Social Security
  • Obtain Section 8 housing and receive assistance with his security deposit
  • Apply and maintain Home Energy Assistance
  • Get transportation to medical appointments

Tim is now protected from people who would victimize him. He receives financial oversight and help with life choices. His life is good again and it started with support. 

 

More People Need Support Each Year


The numbers show that there are 23% more people with I/DD in Atlantic County than anywhere else in New Jersey. Each year, the need for case management rises while the funding available for this service declines.


Money raised during the OceanFirst Charity Challenge will be used to provide case management to the many individuals who need help living the lives they choose.
