Our training sessions, which include the NJ Approved Life Skills Cirriculum, meet every Tuesday evening and Saturdays twice a month in small groups. These services include, but are not limited to, education, employment, daily living skills, communication skills, drug and alcohol awareness, anger management, and transportation. Individual meetings are set up to work on specific issues. Transportation is available for anyone who would like to join the sessions.
