The SOURCE is committed to supporting the mental health, well-being, and educational success of all students. We build public and private partnerships to ensure quality services that are effective, culturally appropriate and responsive to the diverse, changing needs of students and their communities.
The Source has been part of RBRHS for 21 years. It is a School-Based Youth Services Program (SBYSP). We fulfill our mission through best practices in comprehensive counseling services, prevention programming, advocacy, academic support, employment services, family engagement, basic need fulfillment, free public education/forums and collaboration with community partners. All Source programs are free.
We are funded by a grant through the New Jersey Department of Children and Families, Division of Family and Community Partnerships, the Red Bank Regional Board of Education, and the Source Foundation. The SOURCE has been recognized as a Model Program by the NJ State Department of Children and Families for the high level of services we supply and the impact we have made in the community.
If you are interested in joining the Foundation please contact Suzanne Keller 732-842-8000 Ext. 1-236 or firstname.lastname@example.org The Foundation meets in person or virtually every 3rd Tuesday of the month.
