Over 30 Years Serving People with Developmental Disabilities


For more than 30 years, Spectrum for Living has been providing valuable services to adults with developmental disabilities and their families in three New Jersey Counties: Bergen, Passaic and Middlesex. Gifts from families, friends, foundations and businesses have helped sustained the agency and enabled Spectrum to continue fulfilling its mission.

Please take a moment to explore our giving opportunities.

Spectrum for Living's Wall of Love

Thanks to your support, we raised over $800,000 in 2017 to fulfill our mission: ensuring that adults with developmental disabilities have the opportunity to meet their fullest potential!

Because of last year’s success, we are bringing back the Wall of Love in 2018!
This year, we are raising $1,000,000!!! All proceeds will directly improve the lives of those we serve.

Simply click on a heart of your choice to donate and add your name to our Wall of Love. You can also add a special message or even donate in honor or in memory of a loved one.

Donate today and support Spectrum’s mission by adding to our Wall of Love!

*Please note that any donations not made through the Wall of Love will be added to our “amount raised” but will not receive a heart.*
