Mission Statement
Project Community Pride is committed to strengthening families in our communities by providing therapeutic intervention, mental health treatment, and advocacy.

Our Program

Project Community Pride is a community based agency staffed by licensed therapists offering clinical services to families residing in Madison, Florham Park, and Chatham Borough. Although Project Pride requests a nominal fee upon intake, no family will be turned away due to financial constraints.

Project Community Pride began over 30 years ago through a community wide effort to address the behavioral and emotional needs of youth who became involved with the law.  To this day, Project Community Pride continues this tradition by providing counseling to families with children who have committed minor infractions. 

In recent years, the program has evolved into a family-centered counseling agency which provides a unique and valuable service to the children and families of our community.
