Street Smart program for homeless teens to hold open house–in Morristown park–on July 22

What better place to hold an open house… than in a park?

Street Smart, a program that strives to keep troubled teens from becoming park residents, will be greeting visitors at Burnham Park in Morristown on Tuesday, July 22, 2014, from 10 am to 4 pm.

The nonprofit Somerset Home for Temporarily Displaced Children established Street Smart in 1998 to provide referral services for Somerset County youths between ages 13 and 21.  A Morristown branch opened this spring at 175 Washington St. to reach out to runaway- and homeless young people.

Although the parent agency is in Somerset, key staff members are intimately familiar with Greater Morristown.

Somersey Home Executive Director David Walker ran the Morristown Neighborhood House for a decade.   Jennifer Hubler Amaya and Jessica Revolorio, who run the Morristown Street Smart office, also worked at the Nabe.

Refreshments will be served at the open house. If it rains, everything moves into the house, at the Washington Street location. For more details, call 973-644-4666.
