All Hands In



We as parents/guardians, community members, and youth service providers are thrilled to provide a new alternative for youth and their families when conflicts get too intense. We aspire to build a strong relationship with Hudson County young people and their families.

We provide counseling, positive opportunities for youth development, and peer support for adolescents and their families without stigma and without assigning blame in an effort to keep youth at home when possible and safe. We provide a short-term residential alternative to incarceration or homelessness when necessary.

We create a partnership with existing community organizations and a family’s own social network to bolster the resilience of young people and their families allowing them to master family conflicts which adolescence, poverty, social and political pressures, and mental health and drug addiction intensify. Located on Roosevelt Avenue, Jersey City, New Jersey, we provide a range of services for families and youth described below.


In our community, we are also extraordinarily fortunate to have the wisdom of truly resilient supporters who have been integral in Haven's growth.
