Commission for the Disabled

Who are we and what do we do?

The Commission serves the disabled and handicapped Jackson residents by providing a variety of recreational, educational and social activities throughout the calendar year. Our events are open to all ages.

Mission Statement

The Commission for the Disabled/Handicapped, under the auspices of Jackson Township, advocates their advancement and independence through events, trips and recreational programs.

The Commission provides help and information to residents in finding the proper agency responsible in resolving specific problems.

Started in 1971, the Commission for the Disabled/Handicapped (formerly the Mayor’s Commission for the Disabled) was the first organization of its kind in Ocean County to offer such a wide variety of programs for people with disabilities.

Equipment Lending Service

The Commission lends and accepts medical equipment that is new or in good condition.
*Due to the current pandemic, the Commission for the Disabled Office is not accepting any donations at this time. We are also not releasing any devices to the public. If you have any questions, please contact the Commission office.
