There are an estimated 335,000 people in New Jersey with an intellectual or developmental disability, many of whom are often excluded from society because of their differences. Best Buddies’ vision is to end the social isolation that people with intellectual disabilities experience.

Best Buddies has a presence in New Jersey through 6 local college and high school chapters however, New Jersey does not have a Best Buddies state office. A state office is needed in order to expand the Best Buddies programs and establish chapters in middle schools, high schools, and colleges across the state.

There are many ways to join our New Jersey Movement:

-Attend one of our fundraising events
-Sign up to volunteer to support one of our local Best Buddies chapters
-Join one of our committees
-Donate towards our expansion goal

All of the money raised will be going towards our financial expansion goal to bring Best Buddies to New Jersey and open our first state office.
