HISTORY AND MISSION

The Diabetes Foundation, Inc. (DFI) exists to provide individuals living with diabetes with access to high quality, affordable and accessible resources to help them to manage their care.  Since 1990, children and adults have utilized DFI’s services when they are in need of costly medications, education programs and information about where to find local resources to help them to maintain a healthy lifestyle and avoid complications that arise if left untreated.  DFI serves insured and uninsured women, men and children of all ages, with all types of diabetes, who live in New Jersey.

Depending on their medications, people with diabetes must meticulously test their blood sugar and manage their diet and activity every day in order to remain healthy. Lack of attention can lead to life-altering complications. DFI works tirelessly to provide those impacted by diabetes with access to medication and supplies, one-on-one support and tips and resources to help ensure they can maintain a healthy life-style and avoid complications that arise if left untreated.
