Our History

Our History

Lisa Siroti, LCSW recognized greatness in the blending of two concepts—vegan baking and a life skills program for kids. As a result, Papa Ganache, and the PGP Strengths Development Program was born.

Since its inception in 2010, PGP has been a leading wraparound provider, supporting youth & families linked with NJ-CSOC and our private practice. The agency provides alternative therapeutic supports to youth with behavioral & emotional challenges by linking them with mental health professionals and paraprofessionals who engage them in the real-life experiences encountered in the Papa Ganache vegan bakery, in the community, and in the home environment.  By embracing the strengths based perspective within the wraparound philosophy, our program is able to achieve success by partnering with our youth and their surrounding communities.  We pride ourselves in engaging children and families in the implementation of effective, individualized strategies to address their specified challenges. 

The Bakery

Tucked away in the sleepy little town of Matawan, NJ is Papa Ganache. We are a vegan bakery, gluten-free too! offering amazingly delicious treats baked in small batches. Our treats are cholesterol free, containing no trans fat, dairy, eggs, no preservatives, no animal products, all natural, and mostly organic.  Papa Ganache is 100% Vegan, 100% of the time, and we are certified KOSHER.
