Collier Youth Services

The mission of Collier Youth Services is to provide at-risk youth a chance to grow toward their potential in an environment that promotes belonging, dignity and hope.
In 1927, Mrs. Robert Collier bequeathed the Wickatunk property to the Sisters of the Good Shepherd for the establishment of a residential school for neglected and dependent girls. This residential program was in operation until the mid-1970s, when it was changed to Collier High School, an alternative day school for both boys and girls. At this time, Collier also expanded to include a group home for teenage girls and a summer camp for disadvantaged youngsters.
The property also houses the Kateri (Cat-er-ee) Environmental Center, which offers year-round, educational and recreational activities for children and families. These programs encourage a love of nature and respect for the environment. The Kateri programs cover a wide range of environmental topics while incorporating fun and adventure into every activity. All programs use the natural resources of Collier Youth Services’ beautiful 260-acre campus, including a pond, stream, fields and miles of nature trails to engage and educate both young and old.

The Brookdale Community College Foundation

In the 21st Century, higher education isn’t a luxury, it’s vital to sustaining our communities and achieving the American dream in support of the “common good.” Higher education transforms individuals, families and communities now and for generations to come. It is a springboard to success for those who seize the opportunities that college provides. There are government grants for students who have few resources, but little in the way of help for students from average working class families. The mission of the foundation is to help deserving students , who neither qualify for state nor federal aid, achieve their dreams of a college degree.
The cost of a Brookdale education is only a third of that of a public four-year college and a fifth of that of a private four-year college. Even so, finances are still an issue for a growing number of students. Brookdale students juggle full time and part time jobs, family responsibilities and college coursework simultaneously.

Most students, however, don’t qualify for federal or State aid simply because they “make too much money” as defined by federal or State formulas and guidelines used to determine “need.” These students of hard-working, middle class families are left to either take out loans, increase their work hours or reduce their course load thereby delaying and sometimes forfeiting their educational goals.
The funds we raise are made possible by the generous support of alumni, faculty, administration, individuals, companies and organizations who value and recognize the vital role that Brookdale plays in educating Monmouth County people of all backgrounds, abilities and ages.

The Kortney Rose Foundation

The Kortney Rose Foundation is an organization that is dedicated to raising funds to support research and education related to the treatment and cure of pediatric brain tumors. Enhancing the quality of life of children with brain tumors requires access to excellent specialty care, clinical trials, follow-up care, and rehabilitative services. Improving the outlook for these children requires research into the causes of better treatments of brain tumors. The goal is to find a balance between the best available treatments with the best quality of life.

The fundraising efforts of the Kortney Rose Foundation will directly benefit the pediatric brain tumor research being done at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

The group does several fund-raising events throughout the year including Kortney’s Challenge run/walk at Monmouth Park.
