Together

Together is one of the only short-term, walk-in shelters in southern New Jersey, providing 24-hour emergency shelter for runaway, homeless, and or neglected youth age 9-18. Together is a caring and healing home for children where they receive support and work on their future with the goal of family reunification. 

When returning home is not the safest choice, Together counselors seek alternative, stable living arrangements.  Center For Family Services Safe and Supportive Housing programs provide a continuum of care for youth in need of a long-term safe place to live.

Together provides:

  • food, clothing, and medical services
  • individual, group, parent, and family counseling
  • advocacy
  • life skills training
  • educational and tutoring services
  • drug and alcohol screenings
  • recreational activities

Skilled counselors help children establish goals and support them as they return to a more stable home environment.
