We are completely heart-broken and saddened after hearing the news of the recent untimely death of a local student.  We do not need to know the details surrounding his death, because none of that is of import at this time.  What is needed now is an opportunity for each of us to take some time of offer one another support and connection.

For Young People:

On Tuesday, after school from 3-5, HiTops, in collaboration with Good Grief, will be hosting an “Open Door” for teens to come to 21 Wiggins Street for support and connection, and during this time, Good Grief staff will be on hand.

Any teen is welcome to come to HiTOPS tomorrow at 21 Wiggins St. at 3 pm. Counselors from Good Grief, Inc., who are trained to work with teens, will be here to help those wanting support and connection.

HiTops is dedicated to Adolescent Health and Well-Being. We are a youth focused organization and are here to help ensure our community’s young people have the information, tools and resources they need to thrive and grow.

Good Grief is dedicated to the emotional and physical health of children, teens, and families after the death of a loved one and provides education and support to communities throughout New Jersey.

In times of difficulty, HiTOPS Open Door is a targeted response that offers support and connection for our community’s young people.  HiTOPS customizes each response, and partners with organizations and/or experts, to best meet the needs of the young people we serve.
