COMMUNITY RESOURCES

This folder was created to provide resources for students and families who are facing social, emotional and financial challenges while attending school at CCTEC.  We recognize the impact that mental health has on learning and how the current Covid-19 climate has amplified challenges that students and families face on a day to day basis. If you need assistance navigating this page or if you have additional questions or concerns, please contact Mr. Oldknow, our school social worker, at coldknow@cctecnj.org or at 856-451-9000 Ext 3302.
