New Concepts was created in by a small group of parents concerned about the future of their disabled sons and daughters. This was and continues to be particularly important to older parents wanting to see their adult children living in an appropriate, warm home before they pass on. Therefore, New Concept's initial focus was on providing appropriate Housing with necessary supports and services for people with disabilities.
From these early dreams and with seed money provided by families of Bergen County Community Development Program, from one residential home in 1986 to homes throughout the Bergen County, we are working on developing new special needs housing to enable people to live there the rest of their life rather than being from (homes to apartments, etc.) because of their growth or changing times.
For 35 years New Concepts has been empowering and assisting individuals to "Enable the Disabled, Translate Disability into Ability, a winning opportunity!"
New Concepts provides a platform for daily living skills and future growth where individuals can create a new beginning with goals and ideas to fulfill their potentials and make their dreams come a reality!
