BERNARDS TWP. , NJ — Our House, Inc., whose mission is to provide “healthy, stimulating, and inclusive environments for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities,” will open its 18th group home and celebrate with a ribbon-cutting ceremony in Basking Ridge on Thursday, Feb. 1.

Located on a residential street, the new ADA-compliant, four-bedroom, two-bath ranch will be home to four adults with developmental disabilities. With 24-hour on site supervision, the home offers its residents a new and unique opportunity to live independently.

The Dalziel House is named after a local family who has made a significant gift to Our House to support its purchase and renovations.

With excitement of the opening, Bruce and Mary Dalziel said, “We wish the new residents of the Dalziel House years of health and happiness in their new home.”

Michele DelCorsano, President and CEO of Our House, Inc. said that the Dalziel House will allow the agency to help even more individuals who need services.

“Imagine the joy of a parent to know that their child, who was faced with such obstacles, is now living on their own (with the necessary support) taking care of their household, participating in meaningful day activities – whether it be working or volunteering – and interacting with their communities in a positive way.  This is a powerful moment and why we do what we do,” she said. 

In addition to cooperation with Bernards Township, the New Jersey Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) also offered Our House funding for fire suppression in the home.

Our House offers programs to individuals across New Jersey in towns including: Livingston, Maplewood, West Orange, Verona, Summit Union, Westfield, New Providence, Millington, Basking Ridge, Berkeley Heights, Bound Brook and Bridgewater.

Join Our House Foundation on March 9, 2018 at the Basking Ridge Country Club from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. and enjoy The Grape Debate, an interactive wine tasting fundraiser, with all funds to be used to support the Our House programs and services for individuals with developmental disabilities.
