August 13th, 2019

The Arc of Essex County’s Self Advocacy group joined the New Jersey Self Advocacy Project on Monday, August 12th at the SplashPlex water park in East Hanover as part of its #HealthyLifestylesProject!  The group soaked up the summer sun, enjoying the interactive pool, water slides, lazy river, and more!

The Healthy Lifestyles Project (HLP) is a program of The Arc of New Jersey and receives funding through a grant awarded by the Horizon Foundation for New Jersey. The program aims to provide people with intellectual and developmental disabilities with functional education about the importance of healthy choices related to diet, exercise, and stress management.
