The Volunteers of America Youth & Family Services Program has a strong working relationship with the State of New Jersey to provide residential, counseling and case management services to various populations of individuals with special needs. For our provision of services to youth, we currently hold contracts with the Department of Children and Families (DCF) through the Division of Child Protection and Permanency (DCP&P) and the Division of Child System of Care (CSOC). The program is comprised of ten (10) residential facilities in Northern New Jersey including a shelter, group homes, treatment homes, independent living and supportive housing. We also have three in-home programs that provide counseling and/or parenting education.
