Family Crisis Intervention Available to Help De-Escalate and Resolve Conflicts

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted individuals and families in a variety of ways. Families who are experiencing serious difficulties in managing the behavior of children 10-17 years old for whom they are responsible can seek assistance through the Atlantic County Juvenile/Family Crisis Intervention Unit (FCIU).  


FCIU is a legally mandated program that is available 24-hours to intercede in family conflicts and help strengthen the family unit. Its services include short-term crisis stabilization, family assessment, case management, treatment planning and referrals to appropriate community-based services.  


Due to New Jersey’s current COIVD-19 restrictions and physical distancing requirements, FCIU staff is not able to conduct face-to-face meetings at this time, but they remain available by phone, fax and email to help de-escalate and resolve family conflicts.  


For further assistance, please call (609) 645-5861 or leave a voice mail message at (609) 645-7700, ext. 3443. You may also send an email to: dimatteo_heather@aclink.org. Referral forms are available online at: www.atlantic-county.org/intergenerational-services/children-youth.asp.
