It is our pleasure to reopen the computer lab at the AD House.  AD House proudly provides 7  computers with desk spaces that will be an added value in supporting the programs of AD House.  In our after school program, students can use the new technology to facilitiate their Life Skills Training.  In addition, computer classes will be given so students can be equipped with the basic skills in using computers.  Each computer will have access to the internet and will  provide an opportunity to develop the students Microsoft Office skills using the latest software.  The computers were donated to AD House by Prudential and a volunteer from  Jersey Cares provided additional refurbishing of the equipment.  Both organizations are based in Newark, New Jersey.

~ Special thanks to Prudential and Jersey Cares for their support ~ 

See pictures below for a sneak peek into the new computer lab!!

Success Stories

My summer at the AD House was beautiful. It was beautiful because we went on trips, did activities in the AD House and had fun and educational sessions. I also made new friends. I get along with the peer leaders very well and everyone here is like a family to me. I have been ups and downs with some of the people here but I still love everyone. AD House has really changed me a lot and the main person who helped me improve was C, the senior Peer Leader. Before the summer session, I used to have an attitude problem. Everytime I got mad, I used to get red, ball up my fists and curse at the peer leaders. At the AD House, I have learned to control my anger. Thank you for helping me and teaching me that I need to be a stronger person.

During my summer at the AD House, we went on many trips – some of them educational, such as our trip to the Newark Museum. We also went to the Prudential Center where we took dance lessons with the cheer leaders, watched basketball games and had lots of fun. I really enjoyed the trips to the prudential Center, and the end of summer barbeque. One of the new things I tried at the AD House was to control my anger and it really worked. I also improved my relationship with my sister. This means a lot to me because at first we did not like each other. Now we are like close friends. I feel others should support the A.D. House because it is place where I can go to stay busy. Before attending the program, I used to get home late and hang out with the wrong friends. AD House keeps me safe and occupied and I can still have fun. Other programs don’t really care about what we do but at AD House, they give me rules and also give me great advice I can take to the outside world. AD House change me for the better – my sister and me.

Trying something new may not be easy for everyone. When I try something new, it may be difficult. For example, when I first came to the AD House I was very shy and it was hard to show my true self. I did not know who to trust or who would turn on me. However, I began to open up to people with time. I became friends with a lot of people who are nothing like me; M, C, S and so many others. I even got close to my sisters. I do feel others should support the AD House because we go on fun trips, you get to meet new people and there is good food. During my summer at the AD House, I learned a lot about myself. I learned that I complain a lot but I also discovered that I could walk away from things I did not have to waste my time on. As a result I did not get into as many arguments. I made so many new friends here. M is so funny and always makes me smile. D is a nice, sweet person who I can trust and talk to. I am happy I met all of made so many new friends.

During my summer at the AD House, I experienced a lot of new things. I experienced new food, I met new people and went to new places. One thing I made an effort to change this summer was my attitude. I tried to be more patient. The peer leaders, senior peer leader and many other people had told me that I had a bad attitude but I thought I did not have to listen to them because it was not so bad. This summer it hit me that what they had been telling me was the truth. I had a bad attitude and I really had to change.
C.M.
I had a lot of fun on the summer trips at the AD House. They were all fun and exciting. I really liked to go to the lake and the skating rink. I have learned that when you act out, you get punished.
S. J.

I changed during my summer in the AD House. I act more mature and learned to manage my anger. I also tried to not talk back at others as much as I used to. Most of the boys in my group asked me why I cried every time someone said something mean to me. I told them that maybe I was around my mother too much and she protected me, so I did not learn to stand up for myself. After we talked about it, I stopped crying so much.
T.B.

During my summer in the AD House, I met new people and my relationship with them is awesome. I knew some of the people from last year and we have always been friends. I enjoyed the trips we took, especially those to the beach because I was able to hang out with my friends and have fun. I feel that others should support the AD House because to me, the AD House will help you get back on track with anger management problems and they teach us life skills.

My summer at the AD House was a lot of fun. I learned a lot about myself this summer. I learned how to control my laughter. I also learned how to not interrupt the group. Before, I used to make loud noises but now I know I should be respectful. I also learned how to communicate with others and made new friends. We play together and talk about WWE. I learned most from the life skills sessions. We talked about how to find an apartment, how to live independently and how I can take care of myself.
E.H.

Since I started the AD House, I noticed my attitude has changed. Before I started AD House, I would stay home most of the time. I would get into a lot of trouble in school and at home. Since I started coming here, I have learned new positive and negative qualities about myself. Some negative qualities were that I played with people too much and sometimes I laughed during inappropriate situations. I am working on these qualities by learning to do the right thing at the right time. A positive quality I learned about myself are; I actually do care about other people and help them when they need help. At the Ad House, we have had sessions that actually made a big impact on my life. For instance, we had a session when we talked about jumping into arguments. I used to jump into arguments whenever my name was called or someone included me in the argument. Since that session, I do not jump into an argument just because someone tried to include me in it. Since I started coming to the AD House, I have gotten closer to some people I already knew. I did not think I could ever be close to them but I have gotten to know them better. I feel the relationships I have developed have made me a better person because I learned it is possible to have true friends. Since I started coming here, I also learned that I am not a mean person. I just like to have fun but I need to do it at the right time. Throughout the summer, we went on many trips such as the museum, the lake and the skating rink. My favorite summer memory from the Ad House was the trip to Dorney Park. Going to Dorney Park was really awesome. We got on lots of roller coasters and water rides. One roller coaster we got on was called the Possession. It was really scary because the ride was really fast but it was still a lot of fun. If I had a choice to come of not, I would come because AD House makes a big impact on my life by teaching me right from wrong and helping me with stuff that will happen later in life.

Incentives-Our Great Food Sharing

Posted by: admin in Categories: Empowerment.

After every evening session a full meal is prepared by Mr. Linder. He volunteers his service to prepare, serve and nurture the children during this time. Each child sits at the table to eat as an Adhouse family,

This provides a great opportunity to teach, encourage and communicate with them. And in case you are wondering, the teens themselves clean up after the meal. This teaches them a sense of responsibility.

In addition the food is always good.
