Delta Community Supports believes that anyone who wants to live or work in their community should have the opportunity to do so. Guided by this philosophy, we have created an array of support services to help people with disabilities live the lives that they choose, work where they want to work, and in the communities where they want to live. Delta takes great care to provide person centered planning for all services. We allow individual choice to drive our services.
At Delta, we’re benefactors and friends whose lives are enriched through service to others – and where every relationship is mutually beneficial. Over time, we’ve found that as a true community we learn as much from care recipients as they learn from us. And, from residential arrangements to social and recreation options or the basics of day-to-day living — we share responsibilities and lives.
Our services provide a comprehensive ability to meet the needs of our communities. Core Services include:
In New Jersey – Sophia Salmon
908-707-8844, Ext. 133
In Pennsylvania – Lauren Davies

Community Living at Delta consists of group homes in which individuals with developmental disabilities are given the opportunity to live together with staff support. Community-based housing is a safe, comfortable environment in which consumers can develop their independence.
Community Living Arrangements
For adults with developmental disabilities, there is no place like a Delta home. Delta offers community living arrangements in which individuals can contribute to and benefit from their communities. When a person is referred by a state or county agency, he or she will be welcomed into the home that best accommodates existing housemates and new members of the Delta family.
Delta manages residential services in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Each home is managed by trained staff who oversee all aspects of supports and services to ensure our individuals continuously move forward towards independent, self-determined lifestyles.
Living and Working Together
Housemates within each of Delta’s group homes function together as a family. Under the on-site supervision of Delta staff members, each housemate participates fully in the daily routines of life—sharing meals, household responsibilities, and social opportunities.
Staff Support for Independence
Interaction builds companionship between staff and residents. Staff members come to understand each person’s strengths and hobbies, tailoring recreation options and community outings to suit each person’s interests and needs. Most importantly, each individual chooses the life they want to live, and Delta staff members ensure that their choices are validated and protected.
Depending on the level of need within a home, some individuals receive overnight or even 24-hour care, while others may have minimal supervision, but the reassurance that trained Delta staff are only a phone call away. Delta tailors each home to support the greatest independence and safety for each person under their care. Should a housemate require additional or unique care due to a medical condition, Delta staff members are trained to provide the right support.
Health Leadership Excellence
As evidence of our substantial commitment to the health of people supported, Delta Community Supports, Inc. has been awarded the Gold Award for Health Leadership Excellence by Mainstay/My25. Mainstay and its choice-based My25 programs are the primary accelerator within the human services industry regarding health outcomes improvement related to overweight/underweight status, diabetes, hypertension, associated chronic conditions, and social determinants of health.
