Heritage North Family Success Center of CHSofNJ



View Full Screen

Family Success Centers are community based, family-centered neighborhood gathering places where any community resident can go for support, information and services. All services are free and confidential. The purpose of our Family Success Center is to enrich the lives of children and adults by making families and neighborhoods stronger. We welcome grandparents raising grandchildren as well as caregivers. The center offers 10 core services: access to health, advocacy, development of family success plans, parent education, parent-child activities, housing services, life skills, economic self-sufficiency/job readiness, home visiting and information and referrals. We follow the principles of family support and the five protective factors. Services are offered in English, Spanish and Polish.

We believe that the community and its families share responsibility for designing, operating and overseeing the center through the Advisory Group. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to join the Parent Advisory Board to offer guidance and leadership.
