Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We see a world where no one faces life’s challenges alone—where we all have the opportunities, connections, and resources we need to thrive.

Family Connections delivers 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. 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.

Family Connections has been in operation since 1879, providing families with the support they need to face all of lives challenges. We have become experts in the field of trauma and run high-quality, outcome-oriented programs and are well known in Northern New Jersey as the best of the best in program delivery.

What we do really works. We rigorously track data across programs, so we know that we increase social and coping skills, school success, and employability, while decreasing child abuse, drug abuse, gang involvement, and crime.

In addition to overcoming immediate obstacles, our clients develop social and emotional skills that equip them with smart, effective ways to approach future challenges. We motivate people to advance their education, achieve stable employment, and build healthy relationships—all of which drive positive change in their lives and in our communities. Our programs save money by preventing the need for severe and costly interventions in the future. Every dollar invested in our services today saves taxpayers nearly fifty dollars down the road.
