I think this Rutgers Center has significant potential to be a beacon of light for our community. Here is the ORIGINAL POST and the update below from Christopher Manente:

You are receiving this message in response to a previous inquiry that you have made about the Rutgers Center for Adult Autism Services (RCAAS). I am writing with an update on the progress and current status of the RCAAS program. The RCAAS is officially approved as a provider of the NJ DDD supports program!  The application for admissions to the RCAAS day program and detailed information about admission criteria and the application process will be accessible via our website at: http://rcaas.rutgers.edu at approximately 9am on Tuesday 2/21/2017.  Specifically, there will be a tab on the RCAAS homepage with the heading “admissions” that you will be able to click in order to access the application.  It is anticipated that the RCAAS will be accepting 2-3 participants to start the program in April 2017 and another 2-3 participants to start in June 2017 (4-6 total for 2017) via this round of applications.  

Please continue to check the RCAAS website (rcaas.rutgers.edu) and our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/ChristopherManente) where I will be posting any day to day updates regarding the center. I hope that you find this information helpful.  As always, please let me know if you have any further questions.
