Raising children in Hudson County has its special challenges. But there’s no need for parents or children to struggle alone.
The Alliance Family Success Center is a “one-stop” shop providing resources, support and a warm, safe environment for families raising children in Jersey City.
Open to all in the community, we are a family-centered gathering place where any neighborhood resident can drop by for information, counseling, support services, or to just say hello. We are here to enrich the lives of children and adults, and supply them with the tools they need to succeed, before they land in crisis. And when families are stronger, the whole community benefits.
Our free bilingual, culturally competent services include:
- Supportive counseling for parents
- Linkages/referrals to needed resources in the community, including access to health care
- Parenting classes and support
- Parent-child activities and trips
- Stress reduction, financial literacy and timely workshops for the community
- Support groups for single parents and teens
- Leadership/empowerment training for parents
In addition to the numerous, free workshops and support groups we offer for families, Alliance provides referrals to a host of free or low-cost support services to help address such issues as:
- Domestic violence
