Please Support our Coat Drive

October 25, 2019. Ocean County—Preferred Behavioral Health Group (PBHG) is asking the public for donations of new or gently used coats for children and adults to support families in our communities that are homeless and struggling with mental illness.

The PATH (Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness) program at PBHG provides intensive community-based outreach to adults who are mentally ill, homeless, or those who are in immediate danger of becoming homeless in northern Ocean County. Services include outreach, mental health screening, mental health, and referrals for primary health care, job training, educational services, and housing.

All sizes of coats and jackets are needed. There are three convenient drop off locations: BRICK: Preferred Center for Children and Families, 1500 Route 88, Brick: Mondays 9-9, Tuesday-Thursdays 9-5, Fridays 9-4, and Saturdays/Sundays 9-5; TOMS RIVER: 591 Lakehurst Road: Monday to Friday from 10 am – 4 pm; and LAKEWOOD: 725 Airport Road, Suite 7G: Monday to Friday from 9-4.

The deadline for the coat drive is Wednesday, November 13. For more info, contact Danielle Farrell at dfarrell@preferredbehavioral.org. Thank you!
