A safe, welcoming, comfortable place to call home is essential to living a life of independence. Premier manages over 10 residential homes in conveniently located and desirable neighborhoods throughout central New Jersey.
While structured differently to best meet individual needs as well as to comply with state regulations, all of our homes offer high quality services with the shared goal of supporting individuals to thrive at home and in the community.
New Jersey Residents: Group Homes
While the licensed capacity across the group homes may vary, they are all very similar in that the home is tailored to meet the needs and preferences of every individual living there. Personalized bedrooms and individualized space is encouraged as Premier truly considers this the home of the individuals who reside there. Premier is just there to help support them in their own home. Just like everyone else, the individuals share living expenses such as rent, utilities, cable TV, and groceries.
Specialty Services HomesOur wide array of homes includes those specially designed for wheelchair access and adaptive equipment, individuals with hearing impairment, and individuals with visual impairment. Reach out to us today to see if we have an opening that meets your needs or if we can modify one of our homes to best support your loved one.
Supports OversightOur Home Managers oversee the daily operations in each home to ensure that the basic needs of each individual are met. Each home has a dedicated Home Manager that works closely with the local office staff to provide a comfortable living environment, work on the goals and objectives of each individual daily, and integrate the individuals we support in their local communities.

Life at HomeBig changes often happen in small steps over time. Our homes and supports are designed to help individuals learn life and social skills to support their independence and work toward personal goals every day.
A Place for SocializingSocial activity is an essential part of everyday life. Our shared homes offer large common living areas to encourage group activities like playing games, watching TV, and just talking over the events of the day.
Family MealsFamily-style meals are a tradition at Premier. All shared homes include a dining area for the enjoyment of the residents at mealtime or for special occasions with family and friends. Individuals share responsibility for meal planning, grocery shopping, cooking, and clean up.
Transportation ServicesBeing “on the go” is a normal way of life for the individuals we support. Premier outfits each home with a vehicle to support the outside activities that are important to each individual. Transportation includes rides to work, vocational training, medical appointments, shopping, movies, community events, and other activities.
