NFSB Partners with New Jersey Department of Human Services (DHS) and Division of Disability Services (DDS) for Inclusive Healthy Communities Initiative
Nutley Family Service Bureau remains dedicated to continuing our efforts to make a more inclusive community in Nutley for those with disabilities. The report, IHC Blueprint for Building an Inclusive & Healthier Nutley Township, concluded that there is a lack of Affordable Housing, Mental Health, and Peer Support Services. It also concluded there are specific accessibility improvements to public spaces and buildings that can be made that would greatly improve the ability of persons with disabilities to participate in community life.
“David” had strong relationships and a good job. He was an active member of the community and felt fulfilled in life. But things started to change when Covid hit and isolation began taking a toll on David.
He didn’t engage with friends and family, and he broke up with his girlfriend. In addition to feeling lonely, David lost motivation for career growth, spent more time sleeping, and had trouble managing anger. A sense of hopelessness overcame him.
David realized he needed help. He came to Nutley Family Service Bureau (NFSB) to find clarity and regain a sense of purpose and urgency for life’s journey.
