Family Connections

Far too many people and families in our communities struggle with serious challenges—from trauma and mental illness to addiction, domestic violence, and child abuse. Family Connections is here to make sure no one has to face these obstacles alone. We deliver a wide range of services across Northern New Jersey, including counseling, social and emotional skills-building, prevention and training initiatives, programs to strengthen family bonding and reunify families, and more.

Our highly trained staff bring their expertise, big hearts, and commitment to excellence to work every day—not only in our offices, but on-site in schools and directly in the home. At Family Connections, our cutting-edge programs ensure that families thrive and that thousands of mothers, fathers, veterans, seniors, and others can heal and succeed in school, work, and life.

Since 1879, Family Connections has proven that communities thrive when everyone is invested in each other’s wellbeing.
