Bergen's Promise

Bergen's Promise is the designated Care Management Organization (CMO) for Bergen County, as part of the New Jersey Children's System of Care (CSOC).

We serve youth up to 21, with  behavioral, emotional health or substance use challenges, as well as those living with developmental and intellectual disabilities. Our in home, care coordination is free, voluntary and culturally competent regardless of income and insurance status. Click here for an overview of our services.

Bergen’s Promise uses a Wraparound Model of Care, and provides a fresh perspective on helping families deal with complicated emotional and behavioral issues.  We believe success is best achieved when:

  • The youth and family are involved in the decision making process
  • There is a focus on strengths, not deficits
  • Other family members, friends and community supports closest to the family get involved to offer guidance and support
  • A clear plan is created to achieve the family’s long-term vision of success
