Ever since I can remember, I have loved the feeling that helping people inflicts. Making others happy is even better than myself being happy. Through Teens for Teens, I have been fortunate enough to have an amazing opportunity to help others. For me, the best part is knowing that I am helping people around my age to whom I can greatly relate to. Teens for Teens strongly motivates me to be a better person, and I am extremely grateful to be able to say that I have helped people through Teens for Teens.
New Point Specialty
Trinitas Regional Medical Center
2017 - 2018 ORGANIZATION SUPPORTED
New Point Specialty (NPS) is located at Trinitas Regional Medical Center and is a specialty bed residential facility for "At Risk" adolescents. New Point specialty houses up to fifteen 14-18 year olds at a time. The teens they take in have been significantly traumatized and abused (sexually, physically, and emotionally), resulting in behavioral issues. These teens come to NPS as a "last chance opportunity" from every county in the New Jersey. Typically, these teens have little hope and are not motivated for a successful future. This is where our specialized program provides: therapeutic services; education; vocational awareness; life skills; self-esteem building; and most importantly, consistent emotional support and guidance.
