Strengthening communities by helping people build better lives.
Cornerstone Family Programs and Morristown Neighborhood House provide resources to people from age 2 to 102 in the Greater Morris County area. Together we impact the lives of over 6,000 people. We believe that everyone deserves a chance for a happy, healthy and productive life.
Founded after the War of 1812, Cornerstone Family Programs has been important to the Morristown community for over 200 years.
Formerly known as Family Service of Morris County, and finally Cornerstone Family Programs in 2013, the organization has garnered a legacy as a part of the Morristown community.
With full participation from the Board of Directors, community planning and engagement, and staff education and development, we continue this legacy as an organization committed to its mission of strengthening communities by helping people build better lives for over 6,000 children, families, adults, veterans and seniors each year.
Morristown Neighborhood House
Morristown Neighborhood House was founded in 1898 as a settlement house that embraced the Morristown community’s growing diversity. To date, it has remained a pillar of diversity and cross-cultural positivity in the Morristown area. The Neighborhood House is unique in providing a wide array of services that enhance educational and social development in Morristown’s youth.
Because of its year-round resources available to children of all ages, the Neighborhood House has become a second home to many of its families, promoting creativity, academic, and social potential with the ultimate goal of making a difference every day.
In 2013, Cornerstone Family Programs and Morristown Neighborhood House joined forces with this shared mission of serving the community. Together, the two organizations have impacted the lives of over 30,000 residents.
