Background and History
Heightened Independence & Progress (hip) has administered two premier Centers for Independent Living in New Jersey for many years - since 1980 in Bergen County and in Hudson County since 1987.  Through the years, programs and initiatives have continued to expand.  In some situations identical services are provided, while in other instances programs are specific to each CIL which may have County boundaries or span the entire state.
