About Us

CGE is a premiere provider of trauma-informed services delivered in a Continuum of Care that includes:

  • residential treatment
  • outpatient treatment
  • developmental day care
  • supportive housing

CGE provides a safe place for all clients to engage in treatment, rebuild self-esteem and healthy relationships, and break the inter-generational cycle of substance use, abuse, neglect and homelessness.

Our Programs provide trauma-informed services to clients from throughout New Jersey.

Mission Statement
Grounded in a spirituality that treasures the dignity of all, CGE seeks to form a partnership with homeless pregnant women in creating a safe place, a safe presence, and a safe path so that they may complete a healthy pregnancy, choose the next right step, and follow through on their plan.
