A trip to Six Flags for a child in The Morris County Youth Shelter

Posted Mar 14, 2018
The Morris County Youth Shelter provides safe, temporary residential care to at-risk adolescents who are struggling to effectively cope with a myriad of challenges in their lives. These youths are placed at the Morris County Youth Shelter via the family court system due to DCP &P removal, abuse and neglect, homelessness, family dysfunction, & so on. The Morris County Youth Shelter takes pride in its highly effective structured environment where these at-risk adolescents can increase their educational opportunities and learn new and improved life skills and healthy living habits. A large part of our program involves building kids’ self-esteem. A highly successful technique we use is to provide motivational incentives. This encourages them to thrive by allowing the kids to display their talents and individuality in healthy and positive ways.

Morris County Youth Shelter is 18 years old and lives in Morristown, NJ

The children in our facility are of all backgrounds, both girls and boys. Their daily in and out at the shelter consists of many community service projects such as environmental cleanups, meals on wheels, and assisting the elderly. They do these things while at the same time dealing with crisis situations in their own live that have brought them our facility. In return we try to fill their weekends with new experiences they otherwise would not have readily available to them such as shore trips, deep sea fishing, whitewater rafting, professional sport games, et cet. All of which are sought through discounted or donated channels
