MONTCLAIR, NJ - A search is underway for Montclair community organizations to support the local Side Door program.

For the past 12 years, Side Door has served the Montclair community by providing a supervised place for middle school students to spend free time after school on Friday afternoons. Free and open to any middle school student, a cadre of volunteers help to make this possible.

Community organizers expressed that the program has proven so successful that they are hoping to create a second Side Door program located at the Glenfield Park House.
