Get Help

24/7 Emergency Hotline (732) 929-0660

If you know a youth who poses a danger to themselves or others, we can help. Our Emergency Hotline is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and provides direct access to our counselors at the Emergency Youth Shelter.  We’re just a phone call away and can help assess a youth and family’s crisis needs, in addition to determining eligibility for admission to the Emergency Youth Shelter. Referrals for alternate placement services may be necessary, but our Emergency Youth Shelter may still provide a variety of non-residential support.
