HANOVER TOWNSHIP — Arc/Morris held a groundbreaking ceremony recently for a new group home at 70 Whippany Road for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

The one story, four bedroom ranch house is approximately 4,000 square feet with an estimated opening in the first half of 2023.

It is slated to be the organization’s 21st group home.

“We are grateful for the good people of Hanover Township for their leadership, for this wonderful property and for the financial support lent to us,” Arc/Morris Executive Director Salvador Moran said at the ceremony.

Hanover Township Mayor John Ferramosca, Committeeman Ronald Francioli and Committeeman Brian Cahill attended the ceremony.

“Hanover Township is not just about putting up bricks and sticks,” Ferramosca said. “We’re also interested in providing opportunity for inclusiveness for people who have special needs and disabilities within our town.”
