  Green Residential Community Home is located in rural Passaic County on the grounds of Ringwood State Park. It is a residential facility for younger male juvenile offenders between the ages of 13 and 18.5. The center serves a maximum of 20 residents.

The program’s goal is to provide a safe, secure, and structured environment where program participants learn to modify their behaviors and reactions; utilizing ART (Aggression Replacement Training), and other proven treatment modalities. Through these concepts, residents learn to adapt to change, accept accountability, and develop self-discipline. Individual and group counseling is provided by a contracted Psychologist and Psychiatrist.

Staff members act as role models, instilling a sense of esprit de corps, teach realistic goal setting, and promote responsible decision- making. These efforts are supported by our involvement in a proven concept of a champion Model.

In addition an agreement  with the Division of Parks and Forestry the program completes fifty- two man-hours of work per week at Ringwood State Park. Residents perform daily community service on the grounds of Ringwood State Park and Ringwood Manor. Projects include, but are not limited to, planting of seasonal flowers, gardening, landscaping, installing fences, maintaining flower beds, and general clean up. Students are eligible to receive educational / vocational credits through Structured Learning Experience (SLE).

The young men of Green RCH also provide assistance to the municipal government, ambulance corps, fire department, a local battered women’s shelter, and maintain one of the town’s main roads through the Adopt-A-Road Program.

The Green Residential Community Home places a priority on education and appreciation for the environment by supporting all State and National Initiatives on recycling.)
