At CHNJ, through our transitional living programs we provide customized care. That care addresses the specific needs of each of our youth and is key to providing them the skills to transition them to independent living.
Nancy’s Place is for our youth whose mental illness poses an obstacle to their independence. Nancy’s Place addresses their mental health in a safe and supportive environment. At Nancy’s Place they can learn the skills they need to live on their own.
Our Rights of Passage (ROP) Program is the next step beyond Crisis Care for young men and women on their journey to independent living. To progress to ROP, our youth have obtained employment and are earning income.
In all three residences, youth create a wellness plan addressing their physical, emotional, educational, employment, and spiritual goals. Each resident participates in the responsibilities of a shared household setting, which include chores, meal preparation, food shopping, and weekly activities.
