Personal Assistance Services Program (PASP) The Office administers the Personal Assistance Services Program (PASP) in Union County.  The PASP helps program participants pursue vocational goals and live independently.  The PASP can assist people with disabilities who are working, going to college, attending a vocational training program or involved in volunteer activities (minimum of 20 volunteer hours per month).  To be eligible, PASP applicants must have a permanent physical disability, be age 18 through 70, be capable of self-direction, able to supervise a personal assistant and live in a community-based residence in New Jersey.  Personal assistants can assist with essential daily living activities such as bathing, dressing, wheelchair-bed transfers, meal preparation, light housekeeping, laundry, shopping, as well as other chores and errands.  Contact:  Helen Alvarado, PASP Coordinator, 908-527-4845
