PRINCETON, NJ – On Monday, February 17, Sixth District Assemblywoman Pamela Lampitt visited the Community Options’ Daily Plan It in Moorestown, NJ.
“Community Options does an incredible job providing needed care to a wide range of individuals. I was impressed by their holistic and comprehensive approach — as well as their incredible passion and dedication — to helping people with disabilities lead fruitful lives,” said Assemblywoman Pamela Lampitt.
Lampitt had the opportunity to meet with Robert Williams, one of the employees at the Daily Plan It. They discussed the duties of his job and how he liked working with his job coach, George McDonald. Williams was previously at the New Lisbon Developmental Center.
The Daily Plan It, a Community Options Enterprise, is a complete office, conference and copy center that offers furnished office rental space or virtual tenancy to a variety of businesses at an affordable cost.
