ContactMs. Patrice M. Picard
For general operating support of programming to support a healthy, well-educated multicultural community in Morristown, New Jersey.
Morristown Neighborhood House (MNH) was founded in 1898 as a settlement house that helped immigrants become acclimated to a new culture. Cornerstone Family Program's (CFP) history dates back to 1813 when it was founded to help the poor of Morristown, including those impacted by the war of 1812, with basic necessities such as food, clothing and fuel. Now that they have joined forces, together these two great 'cornerstones of the community', with 315 years of history, will continue to build lives and stronger communities by helping individuals, families, and new immigrants who are confronting economic and other life challenges. Pre-school, after school, summer camp, recreation, tutoring, and parenting education programs give children the best start in life and help youth reach their full potential. Counseling, substance abuse prevention, recreation, work force development, language, and skill-building programs build resiliency in families. Adult day care centers, case management services, and counseling and education programs help older adults remain independent in their homes. Programmatically, there is little overlap of CFP and MNH programs and each will remain separate and distinct. MNH will now operate as a subsidiary of CFP and Patrice Picard is the Chief Executive Director. Administrative functions including financial management, human resources, information technology and fundraising have been integrated and direct supervision and oversight is provided by designated management personnel.
