Our Fifth Annual Vigil

Wednesday, October 4, 2017
We held our Fifth Annual Vigil in Van Saun County Park at sunset on October 4th.  Julye Myner, our Executive Director, welcomed everyone and provided current domestic violence statistics.  Bergen County Executive, James Tedesco and Bergen County Freeholder, Chairwoman Tracy Silna Zur addressed the group. Several of the attendees then spoke about family members they had lost due to domestic violence.  After candles were lit, Sheila Bernstein, a DV survivor and CHS community educator, read Maya Angelou's poem "Still I Rise."  The vigil concluded with attendees circling our pathway in remembrance of all those who have been affected by domestic violence.  Music throughout the vigil was provided by Diane Michaels, a harpist from Music for All Seasons.. vigil 2016

Meet Our New Executive Director

Friday, January 1, 2016


JM She is Julye Myner, PhD, who served as Chief Operating Officer of Jewish Family Service of Bergen and North Hudson since 2007. Dr. Myner succeeds Elaine Meyerson, who retired at the end of 2015 after nearly 30 years as head of CHS.

Equipped with a Ph.D. in clinical psychology, Dr. Myner worked to fund and develop a number of new programs at Jewish Family Service, including: mental health counseling for child and adult victims of domestic violence; integrated mental health counseling and job search coaching programs for victims of domestic violence and young adults with Asperger’s Syndrome; and a job readiness program for adolescents with emotional and behavioral challenges.

Dr. Myner has extensive experience in organizational leadership, staff training and development, assessment of community needs, grant writing, program development and implementation, and outcomes-driven management. She also previously worked as Program Director of Community-Based Child Welfare Programs for Family Service Bureau of Newark from 2004-2007, overseeing recruitment, training, and home evaluations of prospective foster homes, as well as support services to foster families. From 1999-2002 she served as a Staff Clinician at Community Treatment Solutions in Moorestown, NJ.

“Domestic violence is a significant problem in all segments of our community.  Each year, there are approximately 4,000 incidents of domestic violence reported to the police in Bergen County, and one in four women reports having been a victim of domestic violence.  Now at the helm of CHS, I am eager to apply my skills, knowledge and expertise to continue and expand the critical services of the Center, providing safety, hope and strength.”
