Our Executive Director, Dean Pastras, was honored on May 5th at the MarbleJam Kids Gala and Benefit with the “Community Impact Award”. This award recognized his 43 years of service improving the lives of youth and families in our community.

As the visionary Executive Director of Bergen’s Promise, this recognition is a testament to his unwavering commitment, exceptional leadership skills, and outstanding contribution to the behavioral health needs of over 8,000 Bergen County youth and families. This award is a well-deserved recognition of his achievements and we are all proud of him.

Many Bergen’s Promise staff members and community partners that have worked alongside Dean were on hand to celebrate this accomplishment. Thank you to MarbleJam Kids for acknowledging the hard work and dedication of our Executive Director. They hosted a wonderful night filled with dinner and dancing.
