Serving Children & Teens in Newark, NJ and Surrounding Areas | Imagine

Imagine Newark

We are located in the Reverend Dr. Ronald B. Christian Community Health & Wellness Center at 208 Lyons Avenue, Newark, NJ 07112.

Currently, our programs are virtual due to the ongoing pandemic. 

For Grief Support

To schedule an orientation to attend Imagine Newark’s free peer grief support groups, please contact Jacelyn Matthews at jacelyn@imaginenj.org.

Volunteer Facilitator Training

Imagine offers free grief peer support services. If you have an interest in helping children and families grow through their grief; if you care deeply about children/teens and love to listen to them; if you are able to provide a safe and trusting space for children to share their emotions; and if you can make a commitment of time and energy to work with our families, we have a place for you.

During our four-day Volunteer Facilitator Training, you will learn how to practice listening and facilitation skills, gain an understanding of group dynamics, become more informed about grief, and learn how to support youth after a loss.

If you’re interested in volunteering, please take the first step of signing up for a virtual tour
