Due to concerns related to the COVD-19 virus, our three day programs will be closed for participants for the next two weeks beginning tomorrow, March 17th. Staff members will continue to come to work as usual and this time will be utilized for training and alternate work assignments as needed. By order of the Governor, all schools (including Pillar Schools) will also be closed for two weeks beginning tomorrow. Thank you to all of our staff members for your steadfast commitment to our program participants throughout this difficult time. To our family members, please know we will be here to support you in any way we can.

Members of the Ankit Memorial Foundation visited our Pillar Elementary School yesterday to assist students with an art project depicting the four seasons. Students had a blast working with different medium like table salt, water and pastel crayons to create their masterpieces. The Ankit Memorial Foundation strives to educate and empower all children. Special thanks to our gracious volunteers for spending a wonderful morning with our students.
The 2020 Spring session of Pillar Care Continuum’s JUMPSTART! Early Intervention Therapeutic Playgroups is just over a month away! The group is provided free of charge for children ages 3 and under, currently receiving early intervention services. The group will meet every Tuesday for 8 weeks at 10:30 AM at our Pillar Elementary School in Livingston (formerly Horizon School) starting April 21st.
