A&E‘s mission under the umbrella of EYES INC of NJ empowers vulnerable women, men, boys and girls to be the best selves they can be regardless of their circumstances. Using trauma-informed care and client-centered approach, our integrated health services ensure all who come through our doors are provided a safe and healthy environment to grow and thrive as individuals, while providing them the necessary tools and resources to carve out their personal success—one day at a time.

ADAM & EVE offers a comprehensive culturally-sensitive, survivor-centered model of intensive case management and interagency collaboration tailored for survivors of sexual crimes. Our program enhances crime victim services to better address trauma, utilize key community partners, and actively engage those for whom access to services has been a barrier; as well as address factors pertaining to victimization, trauma and substance abuse; with a focus on intimate partner violence (IPV), domestic violence (DV); sexual assault; and human trafficking. Facilitated access and retention support is maximized our tailored menu of wraparound services, and our evidence-based practices address issues key to the survival of our clients.
Under the ADAM & EVE initiative, we provide access to safe and appropriate shelters; individual, family and group counseling; and reunite youth survivors with their families when appropriate. Further, ADAM & EVE increases the safety, social and emotional well-being and self-sufficiency of crime victims, helping them build permanent connections with families, communities, schools and other positive social networks.
ADAM & EVE is the first comprehensive domestic violence and sexual assault program to address one of the the most significant causes of violence against women—men. With the understanding sexual violence does not only occur in heterosexual relationships, we also engage men of the LGBTQA+ community. In short, all men engaged in sexual violence can seek supportive services through ADAM & EVE, including cognitive behavior therapy, substance abuse support (IOP), individual counseling, access to health care and supportive housing.
