Phone:  (609) 771-1600

Fax:  (609) 530-1648


 Founded in 1982, LifeTies, Inc. is a supportive network of professional staff and trained volunteers dedicated to creating programs for youth to overcome the effects of abuse, neglect or homelessness. Our programs offer a nuturing, safe environment to heal, learn and become equipped with the tools to work towards a brighter future.

LifeTies' mission is to provide quality care and services to youth in crisis due to sexual orientation, gender, abuse, neglect, homelessness and/or various health issues including HIV, AIDS, Diabetes and Lupus.

LifeTies, Inc. has four programs; Triad House, Rainbow House, TILT and Mary's Place. All of our programs emphasize self-sufficiency and health care in conjunction with a commitment to prevent the ongoing generation to generation dysfunctional behavioral patterns that so drastically affect the young 

people we serve.

• Triad House is a 24 hour residential group home for GLBTQ and heterosexual GLBTQ-friendly youth ages 14-18 who are victims of abuse, neglect and/or homelessness. 

The majority of our adolescents are referred to us through the Division of Youth and Family Services (DYFS) and are unable to live with their families. They have been victims of physical, emotional or sexual abuse. In a family atmosphere, these children attend school and receive services designed to meet the needs of each adolescent, including individual, group and family counseling, substance abuse assessment and referral, independent living skills, tutoring, educational planning, job readiness training and program aftercare.

• Rainbow House is a 24 hour special needs housing program for medically fragile females, ages 12-21 who are living with HIV, AIDS, Lupus and/or Diabetes. 

Rainbow House is the first group home of its kind in the nation for young women affected/infected with HIV/AIDS. For the most of our residents, Rainbow House is the first nurturing and secure home they have known. We provide and coordinate a myriad of comprehensive support services through an individualized treatment plan developed for each resident. These include the same services available to Triad House residents along with additional specialized medical programs.

• TILT (Teenage Independent Living Training) is a program for older adolescence, ages 15-21, which focuses on independent living skills for those without family support. 

The majority of the young people we serve have lived in some type of juvenile facility, residential or foster care situation and have “aged out” or been released. They are unable to live with their families or relatives for a variety of reasons, and while a few still remain in foster care for a brief time, most live in boarding homes, with friends, or all too often, on the streets. 

TILT’s objective is to empower each of these adolescents to become self-sufficient and responsible for their own well being as they make the transition into young adulthood. Services available include advanced independent living skills training, community involvement and service, parenting skills training, life skills through the arts, youth advocacy skill and opportunity, individual and group counseling, substance abuse assessment and referral, educational planning, tutoring, job readiness training and program aftercare.

• Mary’s Place is a permanent supportive housing program for aging out youth, between the ages of 18-21. We offer scattered site housing as well as a myriad of support services aimed at empowering our residents including the TILT program.

GLSEN stands for the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network

GLSEN Southern New Jersey Chapter

GLSEN (pronounced "glisten") was founded in 1990 by a small, but dedicated group of teachers in Massachusetts who came together to improve an education system that too frequently allows its lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) students to be bullied, discriminated against, or fall through the cracks. 


Over 25 years later, that small group has grown into the leading national education organization focused on ensuring safe and affirming schools for LGBTQ students.


We face a pervasive problem with a set of new challenges. 8 out of 10 LGBT students are still harassed at school each year because of who they are.


We are working to change that.


At GLSEN, we want every student, in every school, to be valued and treated with respect, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. We believe that all students deserve a safe and affirming school environment where they can learn and grow.


We accomplish our goals by working in hallways across the country -- from Congress and the Department of Education to schools and district offices in your community -- to improve school climate and champion LGBT issues in K-12 education. 


We conduct extensive and original research to inform our evidence-based solutions for K-12 education.

We author developmentally appropriate resources for educators to use throughout their school community.

We partner with decision makers to ensure that comprehensive and inclusive safe schools policies are considered, passed and implemented.

We partner with dozens of national education organizations to leverage our shared expertise into creating great schools and better opportunities for every student. 

We empower students to affect change by supporting student-led efforts to positively impact their own schools and local communities.

Every day GLSEN works to ensure that LGBTQ students are able to learn and grow in a school environment free from bullying and harassment. Together, we can transform our nation’s K-12 schools into the safe and affirming environment all youth deserve.
