Senator Sweeney will tour the group home at 415 Val Lane at 1 p.m. before seeing the home at 14 W. Wedgewood Court at approximately 1:30 p.m. He will meet with several of the residents as well as speak with Founder, President and CEO, Robert Stack, and Cumberland County Executive Director Maddie Lobban about the organization’s 25th anniversary and their upcoming gala.
“This issue is near and dear to my heart, so I would like to thank Community Options for showing me what they are doing to help individuals with disabilities,” said Sweeney. “Community Options has an established track record of providing housing across the state, and I look forward to working with them in the future to create more options for those who wish to live independently. The services they provide are something we need to encourage and see more of across New Jersey.”
Community Options purchased both homes in 2011.
