LITTLE FERRY - Families in Bergen County still struggling nearly a year after Hurricane Sandy have a new place to turn for help.

The state's 51st Family Success Center opened Tuesday in Little Ferry.

The center will provide families in Little Ferry and Moonachie with employment assistance, financial literacy training and even stress-reduction seminars.

It will also provide counseling on domestic violence, nutrition and health care.

"Family success centers are powerful because they enrich the lives of children," says Allison Blake of the Department of Children and Families. "They're powerful because they strengthen families and neighborhoods."

There is now at least one family success center in every county. The centers are run by the New Jersey Department of Children and Families.
