Our hearts are broken.
It is with profound and utter sadness that we pause to remember our dear friend, Bev Roberts, who improved the lives of countless individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. Bev was brilliant and embodied the spirit of the word advocacy. She was the link between families and systems, helping families understand the system and helping decision-makers understand the impact of their choices on families. She welcomed the opportunity to share her vast knowledge and expertise and we are all better off for it. Through her position as Director, Mainstreaming Medical Care at Arc of NJ, and the very way she lived her life, Bev leaves a legacy of dedication, compassion, and caring that we should all strive to emulate.
We send our deepest condolences to her family, friends, colleagues, and loved ones. We will miss her dearly, but her memory will live on in the hearts of all who knew her
