FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: Kim Wallace, Robins' Nest Director of Development 856-881-8689 x 159 Robins' Nest Hosts Open House Elmer NJ, May 14, 2008 - Robins' Nest Children's Services is pleased to host an Open House at their newest location at 475 Route 40 Elmer. Robins' Nest has two new programs that are being administered from the Elmer Office. Differential Response is a program for families experiencing challenges or that have needs that are threatening the stability of the family. Our staff provides a range of family centered services to empower families to attain selfsufficiency, permanency and well being. Jorge Velazquez is the Director of Robins' Nest Differential Response Program. The second program is the Nurse Family Partnership Program, which provides services to first time mothers in the early stages of their pregnancy and work with them up to the child's second birthday. The Director of Nurse-Family Partnership is Angela Amoriello. Both of these programs serve Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem Counties. "Although Robins' Nest has been providing a broad array of services to these counties throughout the years, it is wonderful to have a presence in the community, said Executive Director Dr. Anthony DiFabio. Robins' Nest is committed to providing the highest quality of service through these new programs as we have done in the past with our existing programs." Robins' Nest was founded in 1968 to address the needs of abused and neglected adolescent girls. Within a year the agency opened New Jersey's first communitybased group home for girls to provide a more compassionate alternative to institutional care or incarceration. In 1983, the techniques that had brought Robins' Nest success in the residential program were utilized in the design of a strength-based family treatment program. This innovative in-home program expanded the agency's services to boys and girls of all ages. For nearly four decades, Robins' Nest has continued to respond to the unmet needs of children with the development of a wide variety of innovative and effective in-home treatment programs. Some additional services that the agency provides are residential, in-home and outpatient treatment options keeping the focus on family reunification and skill building to bring stability to otherwise turbulent situations. Robins' Nest is

committed to doing "Whatever it takes to provide solutions to the problems that cause pain and suffering for children".
