Robins’ Nest Inc. recently opened a new office location in Vineland, NJ, to accommodate staff working within the Children’s Mobile Response and Stabilization Services program. The new location, located at 1350 Southwest Boulevard, opened Friday, January 13, and will serve as an administrative space for Robins’ Nest staff. The expansion is due to an increase in the volume of families being served by the Mobile Response program.
Robins’ Nest’s Mobile Response and Stabilization Services provide crisis outreach to children and youth who are experiencing escalating emotional or behavioral health issues. Workers respond in order to diffuse an immediate crisis and keep children safe and stable within their homes. The Mobile Response program services are particularly unique in that they are directly accessible by phone to community members, and are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Currently, the program serves children and young adults ages 21 and under residing in Cumberland, Gloucester, and Salem counties.
“Our Mobile Response staff is thrilled to be expanding our operations to Vineland,” said Nicole Stemberger, Director of Child Behavioral Health Programs for Robins’ Nest. “This new site gives the program more capacity for staff to adequately serve the increase in youth that we have been working with recently. Our Mobile team has been anticipating this move, and we look forward to this location being a primary launching pad for Mobile dispatches to our families in Cumberland County.”
“Nicole and the Mobile Response team have done an amazing job in positioning us for this much-needed expansion,” said Melissa Fox, Chief Operating Officer. “As Robins’ Nest continues to grow to support the changing needs of our community, we are committed to not only identifying new opportunities, but also to maximizing the existing wonderful programming we currently provide. This is another key step in our continuing to move forward.”
