Founded in 1979, Binnacle House, formerly known as Hunterdon Youth Services, has spent the last 35 years safeguarding children, strengthening families, and building responsible citizens. What began as an emergency shelter for children in Hunterdon County has expanded into a continuum of care for youth who are not safe with their families of origin.


Creating brighter futures for youth and families.


We envision a world where all families and youth are empowered with the tools for success.
