Menendez, Booker Announce $400K to Support Substance Abuse Treatment in South Jersey

   

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Bob Menendez and Cory Booker today announced the awarding of $400,000 from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to support Robins’ Nest’s Recovery and Housing Program in Bridgeton.

“I applaud Robins’ Nest for their five decades of commitment to helping members of the community live productive and successful lives,” said Sen. Menendez. “We need these federal investments so that every individual struggling with addiction or mental illness can get the services they need to get back on their feet and remain healthy and active.”

“For decades, Robins’ Nest has provided New Jerseyans with critical care when they need it most,” said Sen. Booker. “Federal investments like this help organizations like Robins’ Nest continue their mission by ensuring New Jerseyans have access to the mental health and addiction treatment they need in order to maintain their health and well-being.” 

Robins’ Nest established a recovery-centered transitional housing program known as “A Place to Call Home” to provide supportive services and homes for expectant and postpartum women as they work to get and stay sober. This innovative program provides parenting support, vocational counseling, mental health and substance abuse counseling. 

Robins’ Nest is currently celebrating its 50th year of operation in New Jersey and runs over 80 programs that support families, children, and veterans with various issues ranging from child abuse prevention to drug recovery rehabilitation.
