About Friends of West Bergen
Friends of West Bergen is a group of community members dedicated to supporting the healing programs and services offered by West Bergen Mental Healthcare.
Through individual contributions, volunteering and fundraising events, Friends provides philanthropic support for special projects and critical initiatives not funded by other Agency resources.

- Assist in planning, promoting and supporting volunteer and fundraising events

Recent Friends Projects:
In 2020, thanks to the efforts of Friends and the founding Friends Chair Eileen Wagner, funds raised enabled West Bergen to build a brand new therapeutic playground at the Center for Children & Youth.
