ABOUT US

We’re here for you

Our Team

Dominique Anderson created Amazing Strides in 2018 to help fill a gap she found while caring for members of her own family: Services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are out there—but they can be hard to find, access and manage. With more than 15 years’ experience, starting as a high school volunteer, she has served as an aide in residential, school and day programs. She also has an extensive background  in writing service plans and advocating for people with disabilities.

Our support coordinators have more than 30 years’ experience in disability services. Each must complete extensive training through the State of New Jersey before working with clients. They also stay current with regular training through the state’s Division of Developmental Disabilities and The Boggs Center on Developmental Disabilities at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.

Support Coordination Supervisor

“As a caregiver for an uncle with cerebral palsy and an advocate for differently abled adults, my goal is to ensure that people with disabilities be a part of their communities, be able to access all the services they need and, most importantly, be treated with the compassion and respect they deserve.”

Amazing Strides has been a tremendous help to our family!

Amazing Strides is exactly what it stands for—nothing but amazing! Our support coordinator went above and beyond to find our adult brother the right place and all the accommodations he needed. We are so thankful for having found her in a very much needed time for Victor and our family!

— The Da Silvas

Amazing Strides has been a blessing for our family! They work to make sure you and your family member get everything you need, and they do so in a timely manner.
