Are you an employee of New Community Corporation and feeling overwhelmed or in need of counseling to resolve an issue? If so, the Family Service Bureau of Newark, an NCC affiliate, is available to provide free and confidential help immediately. The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) was designed as a tool to help employees work through personal problems that may adversely affect their work performance, health and overall well-being.
In addition to counseling for Newark residents, the Family Service Bureau allows for four free sessions to employees within the NCC network or their household family members. Issues ranging from depression, marital issues, occupational stress, emotional stress, substance abuse, relationship issues and difficult life events are some of the many topics in which counseling can be useful.
Employees and family members seeking EAP services would be guaranteed the highest level of confidentiality when seeking counseling services. In addition to privacy, employees would be seen by senior clinicians who would provide quality services to alleviate the burden of issues that concern the employee. EAP can also be used as a preventative measure for employees who may be feeling overwhelmed with work or personal issues and want to seek counseling before a crisis situation or major life event arises. Family Service Bureau has provided counseling for NCC employees for years and continues to offer such services for free.
Located at 274 South Orange Ave. on the second floor, the Family Service Bureau is available from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Fridays. Under the Employee Assistance Program, NCC employees will undergo an assessment, receive support and possibly referral to other services, if needed. Utilizing these free services may help the employee to increase productivity and reduce overall stress within the family. Therapists are also available for individuals who are Spanish speaking.
