Come Schedule an In-Person Appointment with Us

PRAB is happy to announce that we have begun to meet face-to-face with program participants at our headquarters at 90 Jersey Avenue in New Brunswick. As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to affect our communities, we have been moving with caution to implement proper safety measures that will ensure a healthy environment for our visitors and staff members. 

In recent weeks, PRAB staff have been working a hybrid schedule (a mix of remote and in the office). We have also been preparing the facility to welcome visitors back at 90 Jersey Avenue. As of Monday, November 23, we have begun receiving program participants in the building BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. 

There are a few things we want you to know as you schedule an appointment: 

  • Call a program staff to schedule an appointment at (732) 828-4510 at the extension below 
  • A program staff will inform you whether s/he can meet your needs via phone/mail/email or if you need an in-person appointment 
  • For in-person appointments, PRAB is allowing only one (1) visitor at a time 
  • If you need assistance, you may be allowed to bring 1 additional person; we will confirm this when scheduling your appointment 

During an in-person appointment, a PRAB employee will take your temperature and provide a health screening form that you must fill out before the appointment. You must wear a mask properly from the moment you enter the building all the way until you leave the premises. You are welcome to use the sanitization products that will be available in the waiting area. 

At this point, we will only be having appointments for the following programs: 

Monday –                      Boaz Immigration & Counseling Program              Ext. 142 

Tuesday/Wednesday –Home Energy Assistance Program (HEA)     Ext. 306 

Thursday –                     Housing Coalition of Central Jersey                          Ext. 151 

Friday –                             Multi Services                                                                           Ext. 136 

For assistance from our weekly food pantry dial extension 134 for an appointment. 

The following is our in-person schedule for the coming weeks: 

Week of 11/23-25 –               Monday & Tuesday                   9:00 am – 4:00 pm 

                                                           Wednesday.                                9:00 am – 12:00 pm 

Week of 11/30-12/4 – No scheduled appointments 

Week of 12/7-11 –                    Monday-Friday                            9:00 am – 4:00 pm 

PRAB desires to facilitate and accommodate our program participants. We thank you for your patience and look forward to visiting in-person once again. Please note that, as we receive new guidelines and executive orders from state officials, we may change our hours.
