JFCS Brings Help, Hope & Healing to Hightstown & East Windsor Communities

September 26, 2018 (Hightstown, NJ) – Jewish Family & Children’s Service of Greater Mercer County (JFCS) proudly opened a new satellite office at 133 Main Street in Hightstown on Wednesday, September 26, 2018 to help youth in Crisis. The agency is now positioned to offer supportive services at a location convenient to the communities of East Windsor and Hightstown. Services will be targeted towards teens and young adults struggling with mental health concerns, those in need of stabilization and education for navigating these challenges, as well as serving as a bridge to a broad referral network of high-level services for substance abuse and acute mental health crises. “Our new location is an example of the JFCS commitment to sharing help, hope and healing to our broader community,” said Michelle Napell, Executive Director of JFCS. “Mental health challenges have come to the forefront of the national headlines this year, and it is more important than ever to recognize the need for support and education among our youth, in schools, and to parents.” The expansion into the East Windsor & Hightstown communities is funded by the County of Mercer Department of Human Services and supported by I.C.A.R.E of East Windsor-Hightstown (Initiative for Counseling, Addiction, Renewal & Education). Two years ago a group of concerned Hightstown and East Windsor residents voiced their concerns through structured focus groups and surveys over the lack of counseling services available in their community.  It became clear that this area was underserved and would benefit from community based support services that would include assessment, education and referral services. This coalition was the start of ICARE, the leadership of which then turned to JFCS for the expertise in mental health in order to deliver supportive services to the community. “The launch of the JFCS offices on Main Street is a testament to the strength of our community,” said Mayor Janice Mironov of East Windsor. “To see the efforts of concerned parents and educators come together with the professional resources of JFCS is remarkable and I look forward to seeing this partnership make a true difference for our community.” Services available at 133 Main Street will include:
  • Mental Health & Substance Abuse Stabilization Services
  • Crisis Case Management
  • On-going Support
  • Community Outreach & Education
  • Information & Referral
Office hours will be Monday through Thursday 2:00 – 7:00 PM. For those who wish to learn more about these services or make a referral may call 609-987-8100.

Nosh & Knowledge Presents: Meet Mimi Schwartz, Author of “When History is Personal”

Description: We are pleased to welcome, Mimi Schwartz, author of When History Is Personal. Mimi’s latest book contains stories of twenty-five moments in her life, each heightened by its connection to historical, political, and social issues. These essays look both inward and outward so that these individualized tales tell a larger story – of assimilation, the women’s movement, racism, anti-semitism, end-of-life issues, ethics in writing, digital and corporate challenges, and courtroom justice.

Mimi is a shrewd and discerning storyteller, who captures history from her vantage as a child of German-Jewish immigrants, a wife of over fifty years, a breast cancer survivor, a working mother, a traveler, a tennis player, a daughter, and a widow. In adding her personal story to the larger narrative of history, culture, and politics. Mimi invites readers to consider her personal take alongside “official” histories and offers readers fresh assessments of our collective past. Books will be available for sale and for signing. A kosher lunch will be served and there is a suggested donation of $5.00 per person.

Date: Wednesday, October 10th at 12:30pm
