Community Options Opening New Home for People with Disabilities in Long Hill
May 28, 2021 | Press Release.pdf
Long Hill, NJ – Community Options, Inc will hold a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to celebrate its new home in Long Hill Township, New Jersey on Tuesday, June 8th at 4:00 PM.
Community Options is a national nonprofit that provides housing and employment to over 4,500 people with disabilities in ten states. The new home is located at:
838 Long Hill Road
Gillette, NJ 07933
The four-bedroom home was purchased through an affordable housing partnership with Long Hill Township. The Township provided funding assistance for the down payment and for renovations to make the home accessible. This is the second home opened by Community Options in partnership with Long Hill Township. Community Options works with municipalities across the State of New Jersey to develop affordable housing for people with disabilities.
“I want to thank Mayor Guy Piserchia and the entire Long Hill Township Committee as we celebrate the opening of this new home,” said Bernard Abuto, Community Options’ Assistant Executive Director. “We chose to open a second home in Long Hill because of this community’s commitment to inclusion. Small homes like this will prevent people with disabilities from being relegated to large congregate settings such as nursing homes or institutions.”
Already the state’s third largest nonprofit, Community Options continues to expand operations in New Jersey. Community Options supports 42 people with disabilities and manages 18 residential homes in Morris County. Statewide, Community Options supports over 1,200 people in housing and employment supports.
