1952   

Barbara Abney Bolger shared, “In 1973, I chaired a Task Force that worked with a nonprofit and the Junior League to establish Bergen County’s first group home for teenage girls. I served as Advisory Council Chair for some 37 years as well as a Trustee of the nonprofit. The program is now changing; it will focus on young single mothers and their babies, giving educational, life skills, and employment training. Still helping young women! This was announced April 22 at a special brunch honoring the current Advisory Council and me, as the founding leader. It was a very special day!”
