AMIB

 
HQ: Brick, NJ   |  
Overview

The Association for the Multiple Impaired Blind, Inc. is dedicated to promoting community integration and participation of people who are blind or visually impaired and have multiple disabilities, by providing opportunities for community living, training and support.

Culture

Residents of our group homes are adults, at least 21 years of age, who are blind and have a developmental disability, such as cerebral palsy or mental retardation. The age range of residents is 35-65, with 75% of our current group home residents over the age of 40 years. Parents and guardians of most of our group home residents are in their late 70’s and 80’s. Families of our current residents are from throughout New Jersey, including Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Essex, Hudson, Mercer, Monmouth, Morris, Ocean and Union Counties. Because of the multitude of individual impairments, insufficient staff and overcrowding, institutions generally cannot meet their needs. AMIB provides group homes — homes in the true sense — where residents can experience love and recognition, participate in the responsibilities of family living and have the opportunity to develop their talents with a compatible group of peers. AMIB currently serves 26 individuals who are blind or have severe visual impairment and developmental disabilities. Plans are underway to provide additional facilities for long-term care needs of our group home residents.

Governing Principles
  • Commitment to the growth and development of AMIB, Inc. for the sole purpose of better serving individuals in our care and in need of our services
  • Belief in the value and importance of each individual within the organization
  • Dedication to providing the highest quality services
  • Adherence to the highest moral and ethical standards
  • Serving as a role model for the community

The AMIB homes are located in various communities of New Jersey and are key to AMIB’s ongoing commitment to enhance the lives of visually- and multiply-impaired individuals. Each home is structured and organized in ways that are sufficiently flexible to anticipate changing individual and group needs. And since AMIB offers lifelong care, our homes and programs are continually evaluated and adapted to provide comprehensive, quality services to meet the emotional, social and physical needs of each individual. Safe, secure and supportive, AMIB homes provide the kinds of environments in which residents find hope, trust, understanding and opportunities to become parts of their communities.
