Douglass Organization for Occupational and Related Educational Services, Inc. ("DOORS") is a parent-run organization which provides funding for various social, educational, and recreational services for students of Douglass Developmental Disabilities Center ("DDDC"), located on the Douglass College campus of Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ.
These programs are essential to the total growth of an individual with autism. Traditionally, however, these kinds of programs don't often receive funding from state or local agencies, so DOORS was founded to fill the funding gap.
With expert advice from professionals in and outside the field of autism, DOORS helps fund programming for over 100 individuals attending the DDDC.
In addition to several traditional programs, DOORS funds a number of family support initiatives, one being a unique respite service program.
