NFSB’s mission is to strengthen the emotional and social well-being of individuals and families through affordable mental health counseling and social service programs.
Our vision is a community where mental well-being is valued as an integral part of life.
NFSB has been a steadfast force in community outreach for over 100 years. The organization was founded in 1913 by a group of civic-minded Nutley women who recognized the need for improved social services “… to promote and improve morally and materially, the condition of the poor in the town of Nutley.”
The nature of the agency’s work varied to meet the diverse challenges facing local individuals in the first half of the twentieth century, including the Great Depression, World Wars I and II.
As services and programs offered through government and state agencies improved, NFSB shifted its focus to counseling for individuals and families.
NFSB’s characteristic operational responsiveness to the changing needs of the community continues into the agency’s 21st century. As a non-profit agency, NFSB provides mental health counseling, social service programs and community outreach initiatives to individuals and families in Northern New Jersey.
NFSB is proud to partner with Nutley township, and varied community, civic, religious and corporate organizations to position the agency to have a direct positive effect on a wide and devise population.
Services are available to all, regardless of race, religious affiliation, gender, age, sexual orientation or residence.
