Dear Family & Friends. 
We are pleased to announce that the Division of Developmental Disabilities has given us permission to re-open our Day Programs, albeit at limited capacities for the time being.   The last 14 months however have been challenging for the staff we had in place at the start of this pandemic. Many had to move on while  others still have family needs that require them to remain home.  In turn, we have been actively recruiting and interviewing for our new Direct Support Professionals (DSP’s). 
Once we have our new team in place, trained and oriented, we will be in touch to inform you of the date we can begin picking-up and providing day services once again. 
I thank all of you in advance for understanding the challenges we have been faced with over the last year and especially the last several months waiting for word on when we could open.  
Should you have any questions at all, please outreach to me.


Allen Samuels-Executive Director


P.I.L.O.T. Services wishes to thank the South Jersey COVID-19 Response Fund and the Trustees of the Community Foundation of South Jersey for supporting us with a grant in the amount of 10,000 dollars.

These funds will be used for recruiting, training and making necessary modifications to our day program to ensure the safety-health and well-being of those we support. This will allow P.I.L.O.T. Services to reopen the day programs as soon as possible and to resume this much needed service to our community. Thank you very much Community Foundation of South Jersey.

    Achieving and providing true personalized/ person-centered services is at the very heart of what makes P.I.L.O.T. Services a leader in the field of intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). We strive to provide the programming that our service recipients want for themselves.

    Our approach to personalization starts with getting to know the individual by doing our diligence with regard to becoming familiar with the full background of the person. As well, we perform exploratory and skill based assessments to assist with forming the unique pathways for each person we serve.

    We are committed to this process as we want the data we gather to reflect the unique fingerprint of each participant in our programs.
