Never Alone Again Domestic Violence Organization Founder Theresa F. Johnston was recognized for Civic & Humanitarian Covid Champions from our community.

The Bergen County Commission on the Status of Women has nominated COVID Champions from our community.

Today, we mark the two-year anniversary of the first confirmed COVID-19 case in Bergen County. It has been an arduous two years for all of us; however, it is often said that the worst of times bring out the best in people. The Bergen County Commission on the Status of Women has nominated COVID Champions from our community who have demonstrated extraordinary actions throughout the pandemic. These individuals are just an example of the hundreds of emergency and frontline workers, teachers, caregivers and business owners who selflessly served our county and our community during the past two years. As we begin Women’s History month, these individuals embody the 2022 theme of “Providing Healing and Promoting Hope” and hope you join us in recognizing them.

A Safe Haven Saves Lives!

WE HAVE A LOCATION

Emergency Housing/Emergency Shelter

We are in need of your help with the construction, renovation, and carpeting.

There is an immediate need for housing for Domestic Violence Victims and families in crisis. Typical resources are limited. Spousal abuse is an epidemic of its own during this worldwide pandemic and we have been called to help those in our community who need us the most. We receive phone calls every day requesting a safe haven/safe place for women & their children who have nowhere else to go, often becoming homeless and alone. 

When need your help TODAY!


Would you consider making a donation today to help us with our mission to build a safe and decent place for vulnerable families?

 

Theres' A Place for Us is safe haven for women and their children who have had to escape a terrible situation and leave the lives they’d known behind them. 

 

There's A Place for Us should feel like home. It’s a safe place where t children can play with their siblings, and having a bed to sleep in at night in a safe abuse-free space is the key to starting that next step in life, making what may have been a traumatic past into a new success story.  There's A Place for Us is that place. 

 

We need your help!

 

We are looking for volunteers & corporate partners to sponsor the work and provide volunteers to help us build a safe abuse-free environment to house families in crisis.

Not only will you see where your funds are going.  It will allow our partners to make a tangible impact and see all the good work they’re doing making sure Theres' A Place for Us renovated to feel like new.

A State Farm agent in Wyckoff recently presented a $10,000 grant to a nonprofit offering support to domestic abuse victims.

WYCKOFF, NJ — A Wyckoff State Farm agent recently presented a local nonprofit that offers support services to domestic abuse victims with a $10,000 grant, as part of the insurance company's community engagement program.

Recognized for her community support and volunteerism, Tammy Felton was chosen as one of 100 agents, among the company's 19,000 from across the country, to select a nonprofit for the grant. She selected Never Alone Again Resource Center in Teaneck as the grant recipient.

"Thank you to State Farm and Tammy Felton," Theresa Johnston, Never Alone Again founder, said. "Together, we are saving lives and helping families feel safe and know they are not alone."

"It's a great honor to be recognized for something I love doing; supporting local communities," says Tammy. "I'm thrilled the State Farm funding can support Never Alone Again."

Felton has a "strong history" of demonstrating what it means to be a good neighbor, the company said. "For me, it's not enough to simply say I'm a good neighbor," Felton added, "but I also embrace the responsibility to make Bergen County better by being a part of a solution."

The Bergen County Department of Human Services 

Congratulates 

Theresa F. Johnston, Founder of Never Alone Again

recipient of the prestigious Dr. Celia Weisman Memorial Award

The Bergen County Department of Human Services congratulates Theresa F. Johnston as the recipient of the prestigious Dr. Celia Weisman Memorial Award for excellence in the field of human services. Ms. Johnston is the founder and CEO of Never Alone Again, an organization offering support for victims of domestic violence. Motivated by her own experiences, NAAG’s goal is to end the generational cycle of abuse by providing a safe space, and a wide array of support services. For more information, click on Never Alone Again.

(Theresa F. Johnston seen here on the right with Bergen County Deputy Director of Human Services, Natalie Cureton.)


About the Award


Dr. Celia Weisman Memorial Award! Dr. Weisman was a community leader committed to helping older adults, and this annual award honors an individual or organization making significant contributions to Bergen County residents in the field of human services.

Dr. Weisman was widely known for her work as an educator, community leader, advocate, and volunteer. She strove to enhance lives while advocating for opportunities for older adults to continue as productive members of society. although the award was originally bestowed upon people for their work in the field of geriatrics, the Human Services Advisory Council updated the criteria to recognize nominees who encourage self-sufficiency in others while promoting a life of dignity, independence, and choice.
