Phases (Program for Homeless Adolescents Seeking an Environment of Stability) is a NJ State-licensed supportive transitional living program for homeless youth ages 16-21.

Individual case plans are developed for each resident, focusing on their education, employment, family relationships, financial literacy, nutrition and health. The overarching goal of PHASES is to reintegrate the youth into their communities as productive, capable, functioning members.

What to expect:

Youth residents will stay in the residential and supportive housing program for an average of 18 months, based on their individual ability to acquire the necessary independent living skills.

Referrals can be made to PHASES from DCP&P (Department of Child Protective and Permanency), Bergen County Board of Social Services, the juvenile justice system, churches, schools or other organizations.

PHASES Services:

*Residential: Safe, clean and comfortable housing is provided at GBCA’s Chadwick House, a newly renovated group home centrally located in Hackensack.

*Life Skills Training: Food preparation, budgeting and money management and vocational and employment search and independent living skills.

*Educational Connection: High school/GED support, vocational training and other post educational support.

*Employment Assistance: Career planning and job search and preparation.

*Youth Involvement Activities: Recreation, youth advisory councils and mentoring.

About jwatrel

I am a free-lance writer and Blogger. I am the author of the book "Firehouse 101" ( 2005) part of trilogy of books centered in New York City. My next book "Love Triangles" is finished being edited and should be ready for release in the Fall. My latest book, "Dinner at Midnight", a thriller is on its last chapter. My long awaited book explains the loss of the 2004 Yankee game to Boston. I work as a Consultant, Adjunct College Professor, Volunteer Fireman and Ambulance member and Blogger. I have a blog site for caregivers called 'bergencountycaregiver', a step by step survival guide to all you wonderful folks taking care of your loved ones, a walking project to walk every block, both sides, of the island of Manhattan "MywalkinManhattan" and discuss what I see and find on the streets of New York and three sites to accompany it. One is an arts site called "Visiting a Museum", where I showcase small museums, historical sites and parks that are off the beaten track both in Manhattan and outside the city to cross reference with "MywalkinManhattan" blog site. Another is "DiningonaShoeStringNYC", featuring small restaurants I have found on my travels in this project, that offer wonderful meals for $10.00 and under. So be on the lookout for updates on all three sites and enjoy 'MywalkinManhattan'. The third is my latest site, "LittleShoponMainStreet", which showcases all the unique and independent shops that I have found on my travels throughout and around Manhattan. I have started two new blog sites for the fire department, one "EngineOneHasbrouck HeightsFireDepartmentnj" for the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department to discuss what our Engine Company is doing and the other is "BergenCountyFireman'sHomeAssociation" for the Bergen County Fireman's Association, which fire fighters from Bergen County, NJ, go to the Fireman's Home in Boonton, NJ to bring entertainment and cheer to our fellow brother fire fighters quarterly.
