Located in the heart of downtown, this affordable community will benefit from close proximity to all the amenities that Ridgewood has to offer, including employment opportunities for all needs and abilities.

The Village provides top notch public services within walking distance, such as parks and recreational space, emergency services, AccessLink and the library. The latter offers free internet and computer access in addition to educational programs and enriching events.

Bergen County’s United Way and Madeline Corporation were pleased to partner with the Village of Ridgewood to increase its affordable offerings. With the help of Onyx Properties, a site for the community was secured with a 31-year lease.

“We couldn’t be happier to build in the heart of downtown Ridgewood. It offers so much to its residents and we are happy to share that with 16 individuals with developmental disabilities.”
