Our Story

The Center for Great Expectations (CGE), helping to provide homeless pregnant women a safe place, a safe presence, and a safe path so they may complete a healthy pregnancy, choose a next right step, and follow through on theirplan?

The Center for Great Expectations was founded as a nonprofit organization in 1998. Our two residential-style homes are located in Franklin Township, NJ. These homes house CGE's two residential programs-the Adolescent Program serving pregnant or parenting adolescents, and the Adult Women's Program serving pregnant or parenting adult women with substance-use disorders-and Katy's Place, our fully licensed child development center. Each house accommodates 8 pregnant or post-partum teens or women, their newborns, and other children up to the age of 5 years. CGE is currently operating at full capacity, providing a safe and secure place for our residents to address behavioral and emotional problems, hone critical life skills and firmly set in motion a path of wellness for themselves and their children.

In addition to our residential programs, CGE offers a full continuum of care. Our Outpatient Program, located in New Brunswick, NJ, provides Prevention, Early Intervention, Outpatient and Intensive Outpatient treatment services along with HIV testing and referral. Our Permanent Supportive Housing Program located behind our residential homes, consists of 16 safe and affordable apartments that assist our graduates in breaking the cycle of homelessness, addiction and family trauma.
