Project Community Pride of the Madison Area YMCA, a no–fee youth counseling program that is one of the Y’s community-based programs, is an important extension of youth development services for children, teens and their families throughout the Madison Area YMCA’s service area. The program is made possible through the collaboration of community leaders and the municipalities and school districts of the Chathams, Florham Park and Madison.

Project Community Pride of the Madison Area YMCA responds to the needs of the community at a time when mental health is rapidly becoming a leading issue across our nation. Services are provided in the schools and at the program’s offices by licensed clinical social workers: Director Brigitte Kelly, LCSW, and Staff Clinician Justin Kennard, LCSW.
