CEC's Wine Tasting and Silent Auction

The Center for Evaluation and Counseling, Inc. (CEC), a 501(c)(3) corporation, was established in 1994 to provide unique and progressive mental health services to children, families and communities affected by child abuse and neglect in Northern New Jersey.  

This past year CEC was able to serve hundreds of families through evaluations, individual and family psychotherapy, and therapeutic supervised visitation services.  Additionally, CEC services at risk juveniles in the community through the Comprehensive Adolescent Program (CAP).  These programs help rebuild the lives of children by giving them a voice and mending their broken hearts as well as strengthening their families.  For additional information, please visit www.centerforeval.org. 

As our funding is at risk due to fiscal constraints at the state level, we are planning our inaugural fundraising event. This event will be held on April 20, 2018 at Vasa Park in Mount Olive, New Jersey.  We have selected April for our event as it is National Child Abuse Prevention month. We will be honoring the resilience of the children we serve and the dedication of our hard-working staff.  We are hoping that this year’s event will be the beginning of an annual tradition of partnering with our communities for their support.
