Monmouth ACTS -Serving You Better. Together.
Monmouth ACTS (Assisting Community Through Services) is an innovative public-private partnership (the first of its kind in New Jersey!) that brings together Monmouth County government employees and their counterparts in the private/nonprofit sector to find effective ways to meet today’s human service needs. This group works together to streamline and improve access to services in mental health, addiction, aging, housing, childcare, transportation, and much more. These key issues were identified by a comprehensive Human Services Needs Assessment. Working groups or "Hubs" were created to address those needs.
Monmouth County residents can call 732-542-6422, Monday-Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for guidance, resources, mental health support, or just someone to talk to. Residents can connect to a licensed counselor who can provide up to 6 telephone emotional support sessions, more information here.
