Welcome to the Highlands Family Success Center

Highlands Family Success Center BuildingsFamily Success Centers are multi-faceted, community gathering places that offer families and individuals convenient access to information, support, and resources that help develop and maximize their strengths and potential.

Family Success Centers are designed to be “one-stop” shops that provide wrap around resources and supports to families – making them and the communities they live in – stronger. Staff serve as advocates for families and help connect them to other resources available to them.

Services include, but are not limited to: access to child, maternal and family health services; parent education; employment related services; development of life skills; housing related services; advocacy and related support; as well as information, referrals and linkages to community resources.

The Highlands Family Success Center is a safe and welcoming environment offering family oriented programs and strength-based activities

The Highlands FSC is continuously developing unique partnerships under this initiative, to further strengthen families and the community. With input and suggestions from the community a calendar of events is released monthly, detailing the month’s activities and events. All of the Family Success Centers’ activities and services are provided at no cost, and open to the community. The Highlands Family Success Center is a safe and welcoming environment offering family oriented programs and strength-based activities.  Located in West Milford, we provide a variety of services for Passaic County based on suggestions and recommendations from the community.  We recently offered the Youth Mental Health First Aid course, a collaboration with the West Milford Municipal Alliance, C.A.S.A. and instructed by community member Ryan Walter (as seen below).

HFSC Programming Changes

In light of the COVID-19 epidemic and the need for social distancing and out of an abundance of caution and care for our families, the Highlands FSC is canceling all programming through March 27. At that time, we will reevaluate the situation in our community to determine how we will move forward. We also are working on a plan to offer some of our programming virtually during this time. Check our Facebook page for helpful links and ideas for families.

The HFSC staff will be available by email, phone and social media throughout this time. Please reach out to us if you are in need. You can reach us at (973) 506-6575 or (973) 349-5432

Please follow the CDC and local health department precautions for maintaining the health and safety of your family.
