We are so pleased to have you stop by “The Connect” at Cooper’s Poynt Family School

Since then, our program has transitioned under and is fully funded by the New Jersey Department of Children, Division of Families and Community Partnerships (U.S. Department of Education Mental Health Systems Collaborative Grant.

Our name “The Connect” was chosen and voted upon by the students at Cooper’s Poynt in 2013 to commemorate that transition.
