Consistent with Nutley Family Service Bureau’s history of responsiveness to community needs, we provide services and create workable solutions that allow continuity of operations while considering the health and safety of patrons, staff, and volunteers. Therefore, in this time of evolving public health situations, NFBS will be making the following modifications to our operations:

THE CENTER

Continuity of psychotherapy services will be maintained, including individual and group therapy for adults. Children's Social Skills Groups and the Mental Well-being Workshops are suspended until further notice. Remote psychotherapy sessions are being considered to provide optimal safety for our staff and clients.

NUTLEY FAMILY SERVICE BUREAU HELPING NUTLEY SCHOOL STUDENTS RECEIVE FOOD:

Nutley Family Service Bureau is partnering with the Nutley School District to ensure the continuity of meals for students during school closure. For students who typically receive free or reduced lunch at school, an open-air distribution of grab-and-go meals will be provided by Pomptonian Food Service and distributed from the Nutley Family Service Bureau Annex located at 169 Chestnut St, Nutley. Specifics will be provided by the Nutley School District. Refer to the district website for details https://www.nutleyschools.org/covid-19

2020 SCOUTING FOR FOOD DRIVE POSTPONED:

The Scouting for Food Drive scheduled for March 21st has been postponed. Eileen Painter, Executive Director of NFSB, stated, "We are making every effort to maintain health and prevent the spread of infection, according to recommendations from state and local Departments of Health. Therefore, the decision was made to postpone the 2020 Scouting for Food Drive. The Scout leadership teams and our community partners understand our responsible decision in taking this action."

NFSB provides supplemental nutrition to over 200 local households. The Pantry receives up to 90% of its annual shelf stock from this community effort.  At this time, we are emphasizing the need for local support in order that NFSB can continue to serve our neighbors in need. Particularly needed are donations of: cereal, peanut butter, canned chicken & tuna, rice, pasta, sauce, soups and beans. Healthy snacks for children such as granola bars and raisins are also in demand.

Donations are gratefully accepted in the marked bins on the porch at the rear of the NFSB Annex at 169 Chestnut Street. Additionally, grocery gift cards for the purchase of staples are always welcome. For updates, please go to www.nutleyfamily.org
