The Bergen Family Center

Why Families Matter:

Families make up the fabric of our community. When we support and nurture individual family members we are able to make our community stronger. A stronger community creates a better place to live. We provide assistance at every stage of a family’s life journey.

Whether it’s providing parents a place for their kids to spend their day or a place for older adults to spend their mornings, Bergen Family Center is there to help.

The Zone:

The ZONE at Dwight Morrow High School and Janis Dismus Middle School builds on the strength of young people and assists them in achieving their education and life goals. The ZONE provides comprehensive culturally competent mental health and prevention services in a safe and affirming environment.

About BFC:

From its founding in 1898, as an organization of boys clubs, Bergen Family Center has developed into the county’s oldest operating family service agency.

The Woman’s Club of Englewood, which started the boys organization added a day nursery in 1900 which launched a total family-supportive mission. For the next several decades the agency operated under a number of different names and in varied locations, becoming the social Service Federation in the 1920’s.

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.
