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, Word 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. Presently, NFSB continues its characteristic responsiveness to the changing needs of the community and the times.
A professionally qualified staff is available for individual, family or group counseling. In addition, the NFSB staff engages in a broad array of community outreach programs and social service initiatives which impact the lives of individuals throughout the life span.
Over 100 years after its inception, NFSB continues to service Northern New Jersey as a non-profit organization providing mental health counseling, social service programs and community outreach initiatives to individuals and families.
The mission of the Nutley Family Service Bureau is to strengthen the emotional and social well-being of individuals and families through affordable mental health counseling and social service programs.
Services are available to all, regardless of race, religious affiliation, gender, age or sexual orientation. Services are available on an affordable adjusted fee scale based on an annual taxable income. We accept most insurance plans, including Medicaid and Medicare.
Nutley Family Service Bureau’s (NFSB’s) services range from individual, couple, family and group counseling, to employee assistance programs and community outreach programs. The agency provides services to individuals across the life span, from 3 years of age thru the geriatric population.
The Nutley Family Service Bureau also acts as an information and referral resource.
