(Courtesy of JFCS) On Monday, September 23, Jewish Family & Children’s Services of Northern New Jersey (JFCS) held an open house in honor of the opening of its new office in Wayne, New Jersey. Previously operating out of the Wayne YMCA, JFCS is now located at 506 Hamburg Turnpike in the Wayne Commons.

JFCS has had a long history of helping those in need in Passaic county, providing high-caliber and essential mental health services. And as the organization looks to the future, JFCS has committed to supporting the community by upgrading its facility in Wayne to better deliver its vital programs and services.

JFCS was thrilled with the attendance at the open house event including many key people from the community, such as representatives from Mikie Sherrill’s office and the Islamic Center of Passaic County. Rabbi Randall Mark from Shomrey Torah of Fair Lawn and Rabbi Michel Gurkov of the Chabad Center of Passaic County helped affix the mezuzot onto the new JFCS doors. Susan Greenbaum, CEO of JFCS, spoke about all the hard work and dedication that went into making this office opening possible. President of the board Debbie Harris then opened the office with an official ribbon cutting.

The JFCS office in Wayne supports children, teens, adults and families with mental health counseling through licensed therapists. Most health insurance is accepted, and appointments are available immediately. In addition, the new Wayne office will be a home base from where volunteers deliver Kosher Meals on Wheels to homebound seniors in Passaic county.
