For any questions, inquires, or concerns you can still call our regular number 908.725.7799. Please leave a voice mail message and we will return your call.
If you have a psychiatric emergency, please call 911.
Mental Health and Career Counseling Services are ongoing by telehealth methods in most cases. If you have a scheduled appointment the session will be conducted by telephone for the time being.
Senior Services: For everyone's safety we are no longer making home visits for counseling, case management and volunteer visits. Instead will are remaining in contact telehealth methods and by phone.

Voicemail is being checked throughout the day and your call will be returned. The one exception to this is our Senior Shopper program. Our staff and volunteers continue to shop for the individuals enrolled this program.
