Hot off the press:  Montclair Foundation Grant

Side Door at Union Congregational Church is pleased to announce that it has been selected as one of the recipients of a fall 2016 grant from the Montclair Foundation.  The grant monies will be used to support our ongoing efforts to provide Montclair middle school students with a safe and supervised place to be with their friends on Friday afternoons after school.  We are honored to receive the continued support of the Montclair Foundation.  

The mission of the Side Door program is to offer a safe space where Montclair middle-school students can play on Friday afternoons, make friends, and be mentored by local high-school and college students working alongside Montclair community leaders. Donations can be made by clicking the "Payments" button below. All amounts are appreciated to further our program.

All Recess, all the time - 2:15-5:00 PM Fridays, starts back Jan. 27, 2017

Glenfield Park. The objective of Side Door at the Park House (SD@PH) is to offer an additional Side Door program in a location where it would be attractive and accessible to Glenfield Middle School students and their families, as well as to any other middle-school students who live in the area, and also to create a broad community coalition that will support and participate in the program.  
We have launched a new website,, as part of our effort to expand. You can view our 2015-2016 calendar, complete the registration form online, or make a donation to either program (Side Door at Union Congregational Church or Side Door at the Park House). In addition, a printable copy of the registration form is available, together with this year’s “frequently asked questions”.
