Allendale Association is a private, not-for-profit organization dedicated to excellence and innovation in the care, treatment, education and advocacy for children and youth with serious emotional, mental, and behavioral health challenges.
The majority of our services is provided for children and adolescents with moderate to profound emotional and behavioral disabilities. These youth and their families receive care and treatment through Allendale's residential treatment programs, day treatment special education schools or from our community based clinical programs and services. Allendale's community based programs include an outpatient counseling center, foster care licensing, training and support, and mentoring services. The institution has proudly served troubled adolescents since its founding in 1897 by Edward "Cap" Bradley, a young Princeton graduate interested in the plight of urban youth and the poor conditions under which they lived.

Allendale serves over 1,400 children, youth, and families annually, with most of our youth having been in an average of 12 prior placements (e.g. foster/adoptive homes, other agencies) before being placed here. These children, often suffering from abuse, neglect or severe mental illness, come to Allendale with the devastating experiences of failure in the classroom, misunderstanding in the home, and isolation in the community. We strive to help these children to heal and prepare for a brighter future, utilizing highly sophisticated therapeutic programs and training all of our staff to provide the youth with a safe and structured environment.
We are currently hiring, and have multiple job openings. Please view our website, or contact either of Allendale's recruiters below for more information.
