Nutley Family Service Bureau – Upcoming Workshops & Programs:
Tuesday, October 1, 15 – 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm – The Men’s Connection; A Group for Men in the Middle – The issues impacting men in the established years of their lives may be overwhelming: balancing work, marriage, family, children, aging parents, and additional pressures.

Come join us for this 8-week group for men, age 30-60, that will be led by Joe Armentano, Licensed Clinical Social Worker and therapist at NFSB. Every first and third Tuesday, from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm. NFSB Annex, 169 Chestnut Street, Nutley, NJ 07110. For more information and to register, Please call (973) 667-1884. DOWNLOAD FLYER.
